Newcastle United and LA Galaxy have been offered a cut-price deal to sign striker Samuel Eto’o from Russian Premier League side FC Anzhi Makhachkala. The Dagestan-based team have gone bankrupt and have transfer listed their entire team.

Eto’o, who joined Anzhi in 2011 from Inter Milan, is the world’s highest paid footballer.

  1. No chance he goes to Mls. Hes already super rich and wants to play in a top league. He might go in a cut,price deal elsewhere.

  2. @ frill, exactly…the highest player in the world, employed by team that plays in the middle of nowhere. Shocking they went bankrupt. Their oligarch sugar daddy probably got bored. That said, they did fairly well in Europe.

    I usually have no patience for players who in their prime, go into the hinterlands just for a check but at least Eto’o achieved everything at the highest level before he did.

    I hope he got his money.
