Final deal between Eto'o and Inter close

Catalan sports papers El Mundo Deportivo and Sport claim that Barcelona forward and Cameroonian international Samuel Eto'o (28) has reached an agreement with Inter Milan.

El Mundo Deportivo claims that Eto'o personally gave the green light for the deal. Sport claims that Eto'o will sign a five-year deal worth 11 million euro (plus a maximum of 1 million euro incentives) a year. There would only be a few details left that will be arranged during a new meeting tomorrow.

After a new three-hours meeting with Inter officials, Mesalles told journalists that a deal has been found: "It has been a very positive meeting. Eto'o is very happy with the offer of Inter. We made a lot of steps forward, there's still work to do but I'm optimistic. On Thursday we'll meet again. It's not yet signed, but I'll think we'll close the deal. It's not about the exit bonus, it's about other issues. But Eto'o wants to join Inter and we want to complete this deal."

I hope this whole transfer saga is finally over.

Barca4ever said...

This is NOT official until it is posted on the Barca Web site. I for one hope it is so we can put this sorry state of affairs behind us. This will then allow us to move forward to complete the squad. Lets stop bashing Eto'o and welecome (i hope) ZI

It ain't final, till it's final i'm afraid :-)..
We gotta hand it to the guy..he's a born negotiator if these numbers are correct, he got more out of it than inter did.

Sanur said...

I just hope this is the last we've heard of it, lets hope this is the end and everything appears on our website sometime tomorrow...otherwise I am still not convinced and still worrying.

alcantara86 said...

lets get this deal over so all the talk about this and that can go away and we can focus on football and winning those six(seven) trophies!

blaugrana1 said...

everyday its a done deal !! i honestly am begining to not give a crap who comes or goes...lets hope peps motivational techniques are out of this world

barca4life said...

The end is near, and not a moment too soon.

NouBarca said...

i am afraid why eto'o wants to talk to pep before leaving??will he beg pep to keep him in th squad so that he can earn more by winning treble once again this season?

Tiburon said...

In the end counts just how much we must (over)pay in that case. Time will tell if Pep and the board has made a good decision, it just doesn´t look like that right now.

Je me'appelle Samuel said...

He is going to sign the inter contract and punch guardiola in the face as his final act

xaviesta said...

OK! hope the end is near!
It will be very interesting to hear about the numbers Barcelona is going to pay for the whole Ibra Eto'o deal!
I'm scared that there will be too much payed in the end!

Sanur said...

Je me'appelle Samuel...

Every comment of yours on this blog have been childish, not eevn serious about the discussions taking place and very sarcastic...please just don't come on here because nobody takes your comments seriously and from now on I for one will just ignore them. The comments here should be read with interest and thought not garbage like you come up with!

Sanur said...

xaviesta

Thats what I am worried about oo, i don't want the amount to be too large because evrytime Ibra misfires (I hope he wont) the Euro sign will keep on popping up in my eyes and it will hurt more.

Barca said...

There's more to this than we know. I'm willing to bet my right nut that Inter now has an option regarding Messi. They probably struck a deal where they'll get knowledge of any bid regarding Messi and will have 1st rights if they match it. Cause other than that, no one in their right mind would want Eto'o.

NouBarca said...

there s no difference between this samuel and our african lion samuel.both are childish and stupid and have loads of problem with pep

Sho said...

Omg, it must be fun answering "NouBarca" does it make you fell better? I never use "i" for myself. I am too much for that and dont do "??" but I use "?"

Sanur said...

Barca

That could be true, but thats if Messi is ever available for sale...which might be never or very late in his career when we already have another young star in the making!!.

We definately ain't gonna allow Inter do another ronaldo on us thats for sure we have learn't our lesson from that!

Sho said...

MOD if you chose, you can always delete post from "NouBarca" as I am no linger associated with that username. It has been taken over by a " me - wannabe".

Thanks

Barca said...

Of course Sanur. I didn't mean to imply that Barca will sell him next year. I just find it weird why Inter was caving in to Eto'o's demands so easily.

I don't think that Barca will put Messi up for sale for till he's 26 or something.

NouBarca said...

lol that's a funny comment Sho.NouBarca name is not patented by you.if my comment is indecent they will forsure delete it.you don't worry about it

NouBarca said...

wow feeling great :p

Sho said...

so what other usernames do u fancy on here?
It shows you are goin to jump on the next "big team". Mancity have money. You might want to take up their name..lol..

NouBarca said...

Nah i am not like you who joined barca from mallorca.i have been supporting barca since i was born.even ma gradpa was cule.So i am not ready to change color like u

Sho said...

If this is waht make you feel great, life must be boring on your planet. "NouBarca" was a name I picked and it means nothing to me.esp now that it turns you on. lol..

NouBarca said...

so what?yeah u picked the name cause eto'o used to play in nou camp.now u will pick another name like samnsiro or intermilan.so what can i do for u?

Sho said...

LOL. Your grand father a Cule? Dont crack me up. where were you 2 seasons ago? Madrid cos your your dad supported them? Me change colors? I dont stalk people (Eto) unlike you trying to stalk me. See you in the chat room

Sho said...

You can not do anything for me. you can only do yourself a favour and grow a pair.lol

and why did you chose the name? cos Eto no longer play in Camp Nou? lol

NouBarca said...

ha ha.don't talk about ma dad.he doesn't watch football.ur iq is really low.by talking about ma grandpa i meant we are cule by generations not like u who started supporting FCB since eto'o joined barca back in 2004

Aeneas said...

NouBarca said...

Sho said...

sho = NouBarca.

I saw a low life stalker take up B4L's name, so he had to use his goggle account cos the stalker was posting sh!t in his name.
I tried to set a google acc in my old name, but guess what? some1 had always wanted that name. So it was gone.
I am now sho like i have it on my Facebook- for who are my friends on facebook.
this blog has witnessed some madness

LeónDragón said...

Sho said...

3 months. Thats a shame. You can go change your birth cert and put "NouBarca" on it. lol... jokes!

sashi said...

some jobless morons out there are just trying to do something which they think is funny but even a 10 yr old would spit at it. just stop the non sense and cut the crap wit Nou or Anurag.

NouBarca said...

No more fight dude.eto'o is leaving.so i hope no more fight for him today.let him leave peacefully

suvash said...

why this NouBarcaa and Sho fighting forever?and whose this Anurag again?
i really don't understand u guys including sashi.why so much hate??

Sanur said...

Just a question...Just how many socios are here.....this is not a time to kid or joke and act childish....the real cules on here would not be in the mood to joke at a time when our club is trying to complete a major transfer for an upcoming season where we have to defend our three titles and facing a new madrid side (although they'll still fail). And people are here talking about Grandpas, Dads, and using someone elese name etc....whats all that got to do with Barca.

If you want to act like kids go play in the playground or join a real madrid Blog Not here.

Sho said...

NouBarca = Sho.

proof?

I know the chat room!
I know we all love magnum adverts before matches
I know we love our girls chat before games.
Omarx gave me the hammer twice.
Eloves is my girl..lol

let me stop here. You know who is who now.
I am now known as "sho"

LeónDragón said...

NouBarca said...

ej said...

ponnyKID said...

NouBarca said...

good to see a socio.i will also be a member next year.let's hope they dont increase the price after winning the treble :)

Sho said...

ej. good to have you back.

I was expecting you to end the post by

"sign aguero"
lol.. Good to have you back

insideknowledge said...

i can confirm there is no first option deal with inter regarding messi this was suggested by moratti but laporta made it clear that no future board should be bound by decisions taken by this current board, simply putting it inter promised ibra an option to leave if a big non italian club wanted him for a good price as ibra has done much for inter and moratti and mourinho are big admirers of eto'o so want to include him in the deal as it closes a signing for ibras departure, barring no problems the deal shoudl be done and completed by friday.

Shekhu said...

HAHA pretty hilarious to see all your comments guys :P

Hey Nou...

NouBarca said...

@Shekhu
ha ha actually every single person here is pretty bored.so u will see lots of hilarious comments here

Shekhu said...

Hey insideknowledge.. I remember you.. an inside source at the camp nou right? :P

dude, what are the plans to buy a midfielder? A squad player?.. I got no clue why are we after Mascherano..

barca4life said...

ok sho = nou, only he could have known about magnum ads lol.

barca4life said...

What happened to villa cesc bastos insideknowledge?

Sho said...

sup sheku.


and inisdideknowledge, was Morrati on cheap crack to have even mentioned Messi even if he was planning 2018? lol..

and whats up with Bastos, cesc et al you told us about

Shekhu said...

b4l.. I thought I had you added in my FB..but I was wrong.. :(

@topic he would only remember the talk about girls too.. LMAO

barca4life said...

lol, nah i'm not on facebook. Sorry.

Barca said...

Thanks insideknowledge!! I was worried there might be something hidden in all this. I don't want to say congrats yet, but great overall job by management.

luimac said...

I was pretty sure the "new offer" was BS. Still a lot of people here bought it and started their silly Eto'o hating comments. Again... Eto'o isn't doing anything ANY player wouldn't do. Especially when you talk about highest level ones. I guess now is up to Barca to set a finalcial agreement with Ibra, which I hope you all don't forget, is going to try to take as much as he can from Barca.
I think by Friday we will have something "official" and by Monday or so we will have something on the Barca site. :D

Shekhu said...

to add to what luiac said i think the signing bonus thing is also BS.. and cooked up by the media..

@b4l.. nvm dude.. :)

carbon said...

let's stop talking about eto'o.his saga will continue for 1 more week at best.just chill.

Xaviniesta said...

@insideknowledge, just curious since you know things we dont around here, can a club really option off a player like messi without his consent? i mean like, wouldnt messi had it worked into his contract that any such agreement should at least have prior discussions with him if not his own say so. it couldnt be just laporta's decision not to saddle future mgt with something like that. there would have a clause written into messi's contract to filter things that would tend to compromise any his future plans he may have . he's just not any player after all.

thanks.

M10 said...

hey inside knowledge, so when is it expected to see here in the blog OFFICAL: eto to inter and OFFICIAL: ibra to barca??

carbon said...

i have the feelings if messi leave barca ever he will go to inter.morrati is the biggest fan of messi and the lad also wished to play in italy at some stage of his career.but wherever he go we will earn fat money for him

Sanur said...

insideknowledge..

who are we really interested in or likely to chase for DM position after this Ibra transfer is complete. I really like to know what players Pep might have in mind since he wants quality but not too expensive?...

Thanks

Barca said...

I hope Etoo doesn't talk any smack after he leaves and both sides end up on good terms. I don't want Barca to have any distractions to deal with so we can screw Madrid's project. If we can stop Madrid from doing anything this season, I predict the collapse of their imperialistic empire :)

And it seems that MD it's doing it's share to cool the atmosphere. They had a story where people can come and thank Etoo for all he has done.

Hopefully Etoo can do the same and say positive things about Barca.

M10 said...

i believe that sho is noubarca, i was the one who created the girl chats before the games in the chatroom, and by girl chats i mean porn, and by porn i mean buffons wife LOL

Sho said...

Just saw Barca training on skysports news. Guddy then gave an interview to the press.

"He is in love with football, hes an example to every young player"

Guddy on Messi for coming 1 week early.

adding "money cant buy you sucess. And you need a strong caoch who can handle big personalities- speaking about Madird."

He also added that Ibra is agood player and IF he can adapt quicky to Barca's style he would be a sucess.

Sho said...

didnt we like Zambrottas property. MELONade..lol.. Lets leave that till match day. sahme I wldnt be here(chat room) on friday as I would be live in WEMBLEY

Shekhu said...

we all should come this friday... hey Nou.. even Stig will also be there in wembly i am not sure which date.. I guess he will attend our match against Al Ahly if I remember correctly..you can contact him for more details :D

Shekhu said...

we should all come to the chat room this friday.. i mean to say..

grizmiler said...

Are Sho and NouBarca 4-year-olds. You're both more childish than my kids. Chill out. This blog isn't about you.

Sho said...

yeah. he said he got the ticket for Sunday (al ahly). I have stuffs to do on Sunday. + Fridays game seems "sweeter" Vs Spurs.

I hope you guys have fun and I shall send a few pics when I get back from the match.
try call me sho and no longer "nou".
thnx

Kxevin said...

As I said in a previous thread, I believed the deal would go through. It was just too far along for it not to, frankly.

And even if there is an exit bonus, it's easy for two mega-clubs to build 6m into varied and sundry things.

Really, there is no viable option for the two clubs. Eto'o can't stay, and Ibrahimovic doesn't want to. This made it easier for the folks with the whip hand to drive a hard bargain.

It feels good, and the comments from Eto'o's agent are particularly encouraging. And Ibra's hand injury isn't a fracture, so good news on that front, as well.

The final numbers will come out, but who knows if they are the real numbers.

Sho said...

Feel free to sit on your throne and judge me.

M10 said...

the italian WAGS were the best huh sho??

Sho said...

yeah. you know. waiting 2 hours before a match can be boring. At least we found a way to keep it lively.

I cant wait for the start of the season. I need my weekend dose of football. lol.

Just get Ibra and let him thump some MADridstas.
A guy was trying to argue wiv me on skysports forum that Benz is > Ibra. I just gave up. No point really..lool

Shekhu said...

lol M10 I guess so Italians WAGs are the best..some other here and there too.. I told ya earleir to sylvie VDV is hot :P

@Sho.. yeah enjoy the game and I really hope you get to see Ibra.. or may be Stig has more chances of that to happen...

and yeah put some pics... would be awesome :)

M10 said...

im going too see barca against the galaxy, hopefully thats zlatans first game as a cule

M10 said...

did anybody else see will ferrel at the chelsea vs inter game XD

Sho said...

yeah I would sure enjoy the game. Hope Henry plays. Not sure if Ibra would be ready.

and will Ferrell and some other celebs saw the game. saw some pics in the papers today. barca have some (celeb)fans in USA as well.

M10 said...

yeah im sure ill see alot of celebrities at the barca vs galaxy match at the rose bowl, probably kobe bryant lol

sho said...

I hope so for your sake.

And a bruva got to roll. 11:20pm.

Peace to all men

Anurag said...

The last sho was a different one. What's with everyone on this blog? Stop the bashing, it's so damn stupid.

I think the moment the actual price of the Ibra deal is revealed and it says official, everyone here is going to praise the board, because I bet its no more than 30 mill+Eto'o. Hleb has joined the squad for pre-season, so I don't think he is leaving on loan.

xaviesta said...

If its really only 30mil+Eto'o and no one on loan I will for sure praise the board! but i guess thats a little less for the inter board especially when you think about the price they made us for Maxwell!
but I hope you are right Anurag
