Barcelona wants to renew Eto'o

Asked about the future of Barcelona forward and Cameroon international Samuel Eto'o (27), Barcelona president Joan Laporta has said in an interview with Catalan radio station RAC 1 that he's in favour of a contract renewal:

"He's the best forward in the world and I would be delighted if Samuel would continue. In those five years he's with us, his performances have been great while several people said it wouldn't even last for six months. The sporting criteria will have priority over the economic criteria. If we cannot meet his demands to renew, we'll look for a solution that satisfies both parties. But if his demands are within our reach, he will surely stay."

Laporta already said last week in an interview with Spanish radio station Radio Punto that the club wants to renew the contract of Eto'o: "Our plan is that Eto'o stays at Barça for many more years. He's a non-conformist but without that he wouldn't be the goalscorer he is. His character motivates the team. I want to renew his contract, although this always depend on two parties. We've postponed the talks and a decision until the end of the season."

I hope he doesn't go but he may decide it is time to move on at the end of the season. Let's hope both parties can get together and resolve this in a better way than last season.

face it people eto is the kind of guy that is hungry for titles and wants to conquer the world. he has done everything in barcelona,if he does that twice he will want to prove himself on another league.

if we get cl this year i think he should go to make his mark in epl or calcio.he has proven his form in spain and europe,he deserves more.i too believe that if he was named etodinho he would be called one of the best and most complete strikers,now he has to work twice to get there.
