The Cameroon captain, Samuel Eto'o, the three-time African Footballer of the Year, is the subject of a multi-million (US$32m per year) dollar offer from an obscure but mega-rich Russian club called Anzhi Makhachkala. The Indomitable Lion's agent Claudio Vigorelli has claimed that terms have almost been agreed with the Russian side.
"We have almost reached an agreement with Anzhi. Now we hope that the clubs agree," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Italian newspaper. At 30, he is in the twilight of a notoriously short career and this would almost certainly be his last big-money contract.
He made his name in Spain with Real Mallorca before single-handedly spearheading the attack as Barcelona won the 2006 and 2009 Champions League. His first season at Inter Milan yielded a treble under Jose Mourinho and the goals flowed again last season - 37 in all competitions. In addition to his Champions League medals, Eto'o has also won Olympic gold (2000) and two African Nations Cups (2000 and 2002).
