Newcastle and LA Galaxy Offered Cut-Price Deal For Samuel Eto’o: Daily Soccer Report

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.

According to reports in Russia, Newcastle United have been formally offered a chance to sign Eto’o, but Newcastle United Director of Football Joe Kinnear has yet to respond to the offer. The speculation is that Anzhi would agree to a deal of around £5million.

In another press report, this time from Portuguese newspaper A Bola, they report that LA Galaxy are interested in signing Samuel Eto’o but Anzhi wants a transfer deal of approximately £13million.

    I’m glad Chelsea signed Azpilicueta over Eto’o.

    Is he any good now? Man Utd should ship Rooney off to Russia or China.

    @ 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.

    Anyone surprised the club went bankrupt?

    Heard Napoli is also a possibility, but I don’t know what the chances of this happening.

    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.

    This story is a bit late on the MLS side: their summer transfer window closed on Aug. 8.

      The Portugese paper mentions a possible loan deal with MLS.

    Eto’o’s wages are insane. No way could/would Newcastle approach the level he’s currently used to.

      I doubt if Kinnear has any idea who this Sammy Ekoko kid is anyway;)
