Deal between Eto'o and Inter close

Catalan radio station RAC 1 claims that Josep Maria Mesalles, the agent of Barcelona forward and Cameroon international Samuel Eto'o (28) is in Milan to negotiate with Inter Milan officials.

Mesalles would have landed this afternoon at 5 pm in Milan. Inter reportedly offers the striker a year salary of 9 million euro plus incentives. Italian television channel Sky Sport 24 claims that a deal is close.

Inter president Massimo Moratti told journalists that he's confident that an agreement can be reached: "The negotiations are ongoing, we're making progress. The statements of Guardiola don't affect us, he can say what he wants and make the changes he wants. If Eto'o joins us because they don't want him anymore, we'll be happy because it's an excellent player. I'm confident. I'm sure that Eto'o will join us in the end..."

2 days tops for traveling and medical.i bet tommorow it will be huge.

Did anyone read what Edmilson said to Sport about Eto'o?

Make sure not to miss the start to a fantastic failure of a season for Real Madrid in less than 7 minutes.

Anonymous said...

I think the deal is not close... 3-4 days left.

riki said...

Anonymous i didn't read edmilson's comment.can you please shed light on what eddie exactly said on sports regarding eto'o.

Je me'appelle Samuel said...

paraphrasing... Eto>Ibra, if he left its because he has problems with either the coach or someone on the board. No shit PeP has a problem with him

barcalife said...

I think the deal could be close. With etoo hearing guardiola say its time to move on and inter wanting him as soon as possibly for mourinho to start work i think the deal could be done before the end of tmrw.

No shit PeP has a problem with him

lol :-)

Hope it's a done deal by tomorrow night or wednesday morning.. got tickets for the london game on friday :-)

I said it before.. If you're a eto'o or ibra or villa fan, we need something up front, they are all world class.. But the longer it takes, the harder for barca: eto'o not happy here(neither is pepe with eto'o), villa not for sail..

morrati is intelligent.he is trying to calm down an angry bull :D

Haha the Shamrock fans are booing Ronaldo! He got stuffed on his first run.

Pellegrini is using a squad of last year players plus the most expensive player ever, understandably. He is probably going to play Albiol, Kaka, and Benzema in the second half. I want to see that and see if I can afford to keep on laughing!

roman said...

yep i really don't get it.why on earth it was necessary for pepe to make a comment that eto'o must leave.it might make him angry and he might decide to stay in the club despite the is desperate to ship him out.bad tactics from pep.

Madrid is about to sell mediocre Huntalaar to Stuttgart for 23m euros. And we are about to give a top 3 striker away for free.

riki said...

i feel sorry for u anonymous.whatever you feel for eto'o he is leaving this time.so let's move on from this topic.by the everywhere in press is claiming that madrid wants 18 m euro for huntelar and now where on earth you got madrid is selling him for 23 m euro.i am damn sure you can't even show a reliable source to support your claim

Je me'appelle Samuel said...

Yea we would've saved a lot of money if laporta put his foot down. But according to PeP this will improve the team. I hope he is right

Anonymous said...

Eto'o is reportedly demanding that Barça pay him an " exit fee " of 15 M Euros . Any truth to that ?

Stuttgart are keen to replace striker Mario Gomez after his departure to Bayern Munich earlier this summer and it now looks likely that they have secured their man for a reported £20million.

Anonymous said...

Anybody telling you that they know anything about that is a liar...

bob said...

lol you are bringing here all the old news man.emd reported it but eto'o's agent declined such claims in the press conference.

blaugrana1 said...

Looks like laliga is bag on top...Bringin in ibra is def a plus for spain.

Etoo is a crazy striker, and i still rate him higher than zlatan in terms of goals, but zlatan is more enjoyable to watch.

I saw inters match yesterday, and he did not play as a main striker, he is just incredible ,,,his ball control is out of this world..hopefully with the all the assist he will get he can no doubt win the pichichi.

And please for all Ibra haters..plz go on youtube and look at his goals and passing skills...no way u can argue with that.

and anyone got any info on the possible midfielder we might b getting? it definately wont be a star name as pep said he wants someone cheap. Gona b interesting..all im worried about is our leftwing position.

slovan said...

Madrid gets 18m euros for Negredo. 23m euros for Huntelaar. Both unwanted at their club. I bet they can get 20m euros for 33-year old Nistelrooj too, the way they negotiate.

We are happy to get rid of one of the top 3 strikers in the world who scored 36 goals for us last season for a bag of chips and pat on the shoulder.

hope you get it clear now.even if madrid manages to sell him for 20 m euro they will lose money from this sale.don't forgrt they bought him for 27 m euro

blaugrana1 said...

Lol no one is passing the ball to ronaldo...poor guy looks like he's about to cry..well boooohooooo biiaa***hhhh!!

I still think he will compete for the pichichi though..he is good after all...might learn a few things from messiah loool

riki said...

lol @ slovan.

madrid buys player for ridiculous price and they sell players for flat price.don't give negredo example.he scored 15 goals in season before last season and 17 golas in last season with almeria.so he is la liga proven player.he is like david villa before joining valencia.even we can sell bojan for 15 m euro atleast.so you want to make business by selling your youngsters.mate football is not all about business.atleast not in spain.if so valencia would rush to sell villa for the sum we wanted to pay for him

Anonymous said...

Yeah I can't believe a Shamrock crowd is getting into Ronaldo's head

bob said...

so mr. eto'o is leaving.wishing him all the best.my only suggestion is don't make mess with italian fans or journalists as they will tear you up.good bye hero :)

Anonymous said...

Good point Bob. Those Italian ultras are different from Spanish theater goers!

Anonymous said...

madrid needs to strength their defense if they really want to compete us.their midfield and defense is still sh*t

skanjos said...

madrid isnt used to teams parking the bus ,at least this madrid. with these transfers now the drew the media to them and every team will play them like they play us,it will be more difficult for madrid this year to get points.

ronaldo is doing fine when he is getting the ball and the team is doing great at passing the ball in midfield,they miss 2 crucial stuff,1 final pass ,guti isnt good enough,2 finish ,they play with raul and higuain upfront .......i bet if they throw benzema or ronaldo infront they will do better.

offcourse you cant judge from 1 game,and centairntly not from the first 30minutes,its a new team i think barca is going to have a good challenge for the title this year .

we will still win the league by miles though hehehehe

Anonymous said...

They had some suspect moments on counter attacks. I guess their defense will be better if you swap Albiol with Metzelder & Ramos with Torres, but their problem is that Marcelo is a huge liability.

So far Ronaldo has been shit.

Anonymous said...

Albiol ain't good defender.i have watched him several times.may be he looked good in valencia but playing for madrid which attracts so much media interest will be challenging for him.i dont rate most of their defenders.pepe is always a big question mark.ramos cant mark his opponent,marcelo is good in attack but worst in defense.they are selling garay.who else left in their defense?the one whom they rate so high lassana cant even hold the bal.dont forget he gifted us a laughing goal in bernabou.so their defense is still incompetent.leave about ucl theyv will have hard time in spain with such defense.

Anonymous said...

Point taken, sir! They are still the same boring flat Madrid from last year. Ronaldo is completely out of the game. Although, I think they would be much much better during the season.

Perez is probably already thinking about a line up to replace Pellegrini!

Anonymous said...

lol robben is injured again.nice opening for the upcoming season.with such a vast array of attacking talent they are yet to score at goal.can't stop laughing :D

slovan said...

riki: Madrid only paid 20m euros for him. They haven't paid any incentives.

Huntelaar was a major flop, he is mediocre, and Madrid still manages to get such fees. The same for Negredo, who is a poor man's Guiza. Not to mention, Madrid managed to get 22m for Owen.

And what do we do? Getting rid of world class players for nothing! A shame!

slovan said...

Let us see what Madrid get for all their unwanted failures who are being shipped out of the club. My bet is that they will get more than 100m euros in sales.

riki said...

they needed someone like mou not pelligrini.their main aim is to get past semi in UCL can't see it's happening with such line up.english teams are tough to break down.don't forget us and bayern.their squad is not balanced yet.they are just wasting money on attacking talents .football is not about superstars.it's all about tactics and right balance.ask mou,saf or even pep.

slovan said...

Not true. Madrid is after Xabi Alonso to partner Lass in midfield and they are after another defender (either RB or CB).Probably Maicon.

I think a team with Casillas, Maicon, Ramos, Pepe, Marcelo, Lass, Xabi Alonso, Kaka, Ronaldo, Higuain and Benzema is pretty OK.

riki said...

check my link .madrid paid 20 m euro for huntelar with 7 m euro incentives promised to be paid over next 4 years.if they even sell him to stutgart for 20 m eurothey must pay that 7 m euro.so its a 7 m euro net loss for them.i bet they wont get 50 m euro for their superstars.

Anonymous said...

slovan you are a madrista.you are just here to boost your team.nice approach.keep it up lol

riki said...

lol slovan i hope your dream comes true.after selling ibra to barca inter will no way sell maicon to madrid.besides inter sporting director already mentioned "luckily madrid is not interested in buying defenders"

slovan said...

Nobody said that it wasn't a loss for them, but the fact that they manage to get such amounts for their unwanted players that they are desperate to get rid of speaks volumes.

If he were at us, we would probably let him go for about 5m euros with 2m incentives like we usually get for our players we want to get rid of.

Watch how much they are going to get for their other unwanted players. When they manage to get 37m euros for Owen and Woodgate, there is every chance that they are going to get well over 100m this time for their players.

slovan said...

Madrid has already bought Albiol, only 23 years old and many caps for Spain, for 15m while we can't even get some Ukrainian nobody has heard of for 15m.

riki said...

nobody from madrid will admit that it's a loss.cause no one on earth would admit loss easily.man i want to remind you something.we are not a selling club.we sell player only when he passes his prime.example : ronaldinho,deco,rivaldo.

riki said...

Albiolis by no means a world class player.if so valencia wouldn't sell him for only 15 m euro.did you watch valecia matches last year.he made some awkward decisions last year.if not rafa would be running after him.you tell madrid got albiol on cheap as madrid is an intelligent club.look at ronaldo or kaka transfer.madrid is now in such a position that rafa doesn't want to sell xabi for less than 35 m euro.where as last year juve was offered to buy him for 20 m euro.madrid ruined transfer market and feeling the hit.

slovan said...

Madrid isn't a selling club either, so this has nothing to do with it. We get rid of players all the time, some young, some old, some who have been atrocious (Hleb), some flops. Unwanted players are unwanted at our club for all sorts of different reasons. Like getting rid of Eto'o because Pep thinks he is a prick. Eto'o is in his prime and it will come back and haunt us.

slovan said...

Let us just say that Albiol is a far better player than 16.5m Caceres. Quite possibly the worst piece of business in La Liga last year. We will probably sell him for 3m euros.

Lola said...

wow wachting the madrid game right now i could swear its a replica of last season same tactics and still weak defense on the counter. i am so much more relaxed now ill wait till later on though. ;)

riki said...

caceras was a bad business.same with hleb.but man we won treble having both them in our squad.they were not bad but rest of the squad was too good for them. nope we are loaning caceras to juve.i heard if we even sell him as far i know the sum would be 7.5 m euro.

slovan said...

It is a friendly Lola.

riki said...

lol madrid made 9 substitution in the second half.but unfortunately their 200 m attacking trio is yet to score a goal after 62 mins

bob said...

a sincere question to you slovan.be honest with your answer.ok dude?

are you not madrista.it doesn't matter which team you support.i am just curious to know.....

tricampions said...

@slovan:
I think you care too much about madrid,and please don't write a real madrid formation here.

bob said...

tricampions,lol i also observed this.he was here to defend madrid policy with all his strength.riki was trying his best to counter his arguments.so i just ask him this question.

Sanur said...

damn Shamrock nearly scored, they are dominating the champions madrid...ronaldo seems to be overwhelmed by earing the real madshit jersey, he cant do anything...benzema however looks more impressive!!

bob said...

after spending 200 m euro on attacking superstars like kaka,cristiano and benzema if they fail to score a single goal it's really shame. i reckon peres is already considering how to change pelligrini.they may bid for pep lol

Anonymous said...

lol bob pep is not figo.i am sure they will try to tap mou or rafa.another season madrid is going to fail to get past last 16 in UCL :p

Sanur said...

Mar my word, the Madridistas will be on Ronaldos back after round 5 of La Liga round then Pellegrini will regret leaving Villarreal, because he will be given an ultimatum to move the club from 12th position before Xmas or face the sack!!

slovan said...

Only clowns judge a team based on a summer friendly.

And don't you doubt my passion for our club just because I am critical of our management's way of doing business. We are making a fool out of ourselves with this deal.

bob said...

lol sanur,thats my dream.i am damn sure ronaldo will be a flop.kaka wil still be a good player but he will be out most of the season due to injury.milan knew about his physical condition thats why they sold him for that price.benzema will be sold next season.but they will keep ronaldo to sell his shirt.i can see madrid in mess next season and pelligrini will be sacked either before winter break or if he is lucky then surely in next summer

lol madrista is back to continue his mourning.good luck slovan for next season.you need it for UCL.

Hey slovan...how did you feel with the 6-2 drubbing? Considering you're a Barca fan i bet you were over the moon.

How about we all chant now...you too Slovan:

Come on Slovan....i want to hear it. :)

Tell us how Cristiano cleans messi's toilets.

If you are a cule i want to feel your blaugrana antimadridista passion!!!!!

Anonymous said...

lucky madrid.they scored in 87th minute.if they need 87 mins to score a single goal,they will be in big trouble by winter break.by the way benzema was way more impressive than baby cristianoric

Sanur said...

slovan,

You're right only clowns judge a team based on summer friendlies...because a football club ain't much of a team pre season because pre season is used to help form that team....we are judging the individual players and if you watch ronaldo it seems he is already trying to prove something about himself to the world, to his team mates and he is lost my friend he is lost...infact if he was wearing a purple sharock jersey then we really wouldn't know who he was!!!

slovan said...

How about you celebrating when we sell off Daniel Alves for a bag of chips and a can of beer next season because Laporta thinks he is a prick. Hell, we might consider selling Zlatan himself by this time next year because of non-sporting issues. What do you think we will get for him? A part-exchange for Forlan plus 20m cash to Atletico, would that make you happy?

bob said...

my observation from the match is pelligrini is not coach for madrid.he has some awful tactics,cant win UCL with this sort of technical skills he has shown today.he managed villareal well,but handling empty headed cristiano,benzema will be next to impossible for a low profile coach like him.they basically bought some shirt sellers.nothing special with this team

Sanur said...

I would use a Madrid jersey to wipe my toilet and use it as a door matt, so I can clean my shoes on!!!

I don't hate them because of their history or anything because if bribing wasn't that easy and franco wasn't a madridista then real would have not had 9 european cups and 31 league titles most of which was won in the fifties and so on. I heard someone say that top players will choose madrid because of their history they would choose them over barca...well part of your history now is the 6-2 humiliation and 5-0 drubbing by liverpool in the champions league....are you litening benzema you prick!

robin said...

now you are showing true color slovan.you pretended to be cule.nice to see you have proven yourself a madrista.by the way yeah we will sale alves like we sold deco.but after 4 more years when he will pass his prime.wait till then to clean his shoes lol

ahhhh that rebutal doesn't prove you're a cule moron.

All you have to say is Madrid cabron salud el campeon and that cristiano cleans messi's toilets and we will forgive you!

i had always doubt in my mind about slovan.why on earth he was trying to prove himself a cule?anyways welcome madrista to our barca blog :)

Sanur said...

slovan

WHATS UP WITH ALL THIS SELLING BUSINESS AND BAG OF CHIPS...

APART FROM ETO'O (IF IT HAPPENS), JUST HOW MANY PLAYERS HAVE WE GOT RID OF ON THE CHEAP....WE SOLD DECO WHEN HE BECAME USELESS AND THE SAME WITH RONALDINHO....THE ONLY PLAYER WE LOST THAT WE DIDN'T WANT TO WAS FIGO BUT IT WAS A WORLD RECORD FEE WE RECEIVED AND FIGO NEVER REALLY WENT ON TO BE THE SAME PLAYER EVER AGAIN. ROMARIO AND RIVALDO WERE DONE BY THE TIME THEY WERE LET GO, AND IN 1998 WE GOT 18MIL FOR RONALSO WHEN THE WORLD RECORD FEE WAS STILL ABOUT 13 MIL MILAN PAID FOR LENTINI! SO WHAT MAKES YOU THINK WE ARE JUST GOING TO SELL THIS PLAYER AND THAT PLAYER FOR CHEAP!! MAN FIND A USEFUL STATEMENT TO MAKE!!

robin said...

lol a homeless madrista is trying to take shelter under a cule tree

slovan said...

Don't count on it. He will be gone before then the way we treat our greatest players like Eto'o. I bet he will show us a thing or two about what "prime" really is in the CL next season. Wouldn't surprise me if he knocked us out and Zlatan had yet another goal-less night in Europe.

lol bob...hey slovan ...we don't care that you're here...in fact it's quite understandable...after that pity performance against the Rovers, i'd pledge allegiance to Barca as well if i were a madridista!

lol slovan.you are a prick.again you are trying to pretend a cule.shame i haven't seen a coward like you in my life

Sanur said...

Slovan

Inter need more than Eto'o to even be considered a contender never mind even thinking of beating us..Eto'o needed
essi, Iniest, and Xavi to help him otherwise he is abit useless as we saw in the mallorca game at the end of last season...then you say of Zlatan of having a goaless European campaign..well mate Barca are a team and if Zlatan doesn't score we still have alot of others that can score...minus Eto'os goals we still scored more than any other team in Europe and only a few behind madrid maybe.

slovan said...

Sanur, don't talk nonsense. It is this board that somehow is scared to death of our players leaving for other clubs. It is a small-club mentality which makes our players greedy and makes it very difficult for us to get any reasonable fee for our players.

Why do they feel they need to give our players so much money? Madrid even takes half the image rights of their players. Why can't we do this? Are we afraid of doing it? Are we not a big club that players all over the world would dream of playing at?

pep said...

Keep things polite, guys. Don't get personal.

bob said...

eto'o needs 3-4 chances to score a goal.even if bojan got that many chances i rekon he would score atleast 25+ goals each season.eto'o is good but nothing above average.with the midfield he will get at inter i bet he will at best score 15 goals in serie A

bob said...

slovan you haven't yet answered our question??let us know which club you support?even if you support madrid we will try to accept you with open arms lol

omar said...

if eto'o leaves we have to thank him in stadium in the camp no and 90,0000 and thank him alot for all hi sgoals and trophies he brings to barca we have to thank him alot and graduiola have to thank eto'o in camp nou and all the squad and laporta and every meber of the team attend this celebrition of eto'o and all thank him we have to make him leave and he is happy bec. he gave us alot

robin said...

please slovan dont be afraid of admitting that you are a madrista.we cules are very polite.we wont hold any grudge against you for visiting our site :)

And if the Zlatan deal fall through, we are looking at the Operation Forlan again. That would be an even worse nightmare than what is happening currently by sending away our club legend Eto'o away for free.

i reckon old peres can't even use internet.slovan is basically a homeless and jobless madrista who visits epl and spanish teams fan site.he pretends to be their supporter and start bashing the team and their transfer activities.he was even banned from manu official fan forum redcafe,net

slovan said...

Perez would never be so stupid as this transfer deal. Although the Operation Forlan, with 36m+Eto'o even smashes the Zlatan deal in sheer stupidity.

roman said...

guys slovan is basically trying to create panic by spreading false rumor.he is basically a agent of florentino peres who recently lost job due to recession and living on money from peres

see the market value of eto'o.even athletico doesn't want to sign him.they rate forlan higher than eto'o

bob said...

actually everyone is scared of eto'o's off field attitude.so no one wants to bring a virus in their dressing room,.that's why SAF or berlusconi declined to bid for eto'o

slovan said...

Exactly. We are experts at getting next to nothing for our players. Even a world class striker who had a fantastic season for us and has been a pain in the ass for Madrid every time we face them, and is the closest thing we have got to Luis Enrique and Stoichkov, we get nothing for him.

Anonymous said...

blaugrana1 said that Ibrahimovic is more enjoyable to watch. Well yeah sure he has better technique but that is all he's got on Eto'o. Eto'o works much harder all over the pitch something that Ibra does not. He is quicker then Ibra and he's got a much better attitude on the pitch then Ibra who often complains and waves his arms at team mates if the passes doesn't come exactly the way he wants them. Ibra is not gonna work hard and put pressure on opposing defenders like Eto'o and other in Barcelona does. Eto'o scores goals not just in La Liga but also in CL something Ibra almost never do. He scores almost all his goals in the Italian league but very few in CL or the swedish national team. I think that Barcelona is feeling pressured to sign a "big name" just because Madrid signed Kaka and Ronaldo and this is a nice opportunity to get rid of Eto'o. It will not be a good deal for Barcelona unless they can change Ibrahimovic attitude and the way he plays. But who knows, I may be wrong and this will be the best deal they've ever done! :)

Stop changing the subject and bring up some counterarguments if you have some. It doesn't seem like you do, so you resort to baseless accusations and mudslinging. It just proves my point.

What is it with you guys? Since when Eto'o was a Barca legend? Ronaldinho who was much better left barca and we've won the triple. FCB will go on believe me with or without Eto'o! Barca policy since long time is that some positions need to be changed every 4 years or so, like the central forward, in order to add motivation. and Ibra is the most fit for this position in this time of barca. he is technical, scorer and above all MOTIVATED. I am 100% with Pep decision. but i sometimes get feeling that you guys have started supporting barca only since 2004, the year Eto'o was signed

NouBarca said...

I think Slovan is just trying to say hes not happy with the way Eto was "pushed out". I have argued and am not going down that road again. My Love is for Barca, not for the coach or players. tho there are a few players I LOVE and I also Loved Rjikard (when he was on top of things). Players would come and go, barca would always remain. If Eto is being "silly", Barca should have handled it in a better way, since 2 wrongs never make a right. And our name is worth much more than Eto's or any individual, so we should have done a lot to protect it (More than just a club)
