Transfer Gossips and Rumors: Eto'o is Going To Join Anzhi Makachkala

The transfer process of Samuel Eto'o from Inter Milan to Anzhi continues. This is the hottest transfer rumors this week, after Fabregas issue had been resolved and Scheneider issue is still uncertain.

Anzhi is reported to have breached an agreement with Inter to buy Eto'o worth 27 million euros. Beside the amount they would accept, another advantage for Inter is, they can save on payroll costs of Eto'o up to 72 million euros, as budgeted if the players continue with them until his contract finished in 2014.

Anzhi, the Russian club based in the capital of the Republic of Dagestan, Makhachkala, was willing to pay extraordinary salaries Eto'o. The salary amount offered to Eto’o is also one of most attractive issue beside the transfer gossips itself. The club owned by oil tycoon named Suleiman Kerimov was ready to give the players 30 years was 20 million euros per year.

If so, then, Eto'o would be the highest-paid player in the world, beating the amount of Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo (12 million euros / season) and Barcelona’s star Lionel Messi (10 million euros / year).

Before Eto’o, they have bought Yuri Zhirkov from Chelsea, and long before, another veteran star, 38-year-old Brazilian, Roberto Carlos, has brought in February,and a month later make it as club captain. Besides these names, Gennaro Gattuso also have been their target, but then refused to join for family reason. It seems that the tycoon still want to play with his money. If so, we would might see another transfer gossips and rumors sensation will be coming from little town called Makachkala.
