Chelsea will complete the signing of Anzhi Makhachkala striker Samuel Eto’o today. Watch a video of his best goals and skills for Anzhi.
Chelsea are expected to complete the signing of Samuel Eto’o from Anzhi Makhachkala in the next 24 hours, and the veteran Cameroon international has one of the best personal pedigrees in the world.
Having won three UEFA Champions League titles, scoring goals in two of them, and trebles with Barcelona and Inter Milan in consecutive seasons, Eto’o became the highest paid footballer in the world when he moved to Anzhi in 2011.
However, the Russian club are in financial difficulties, and the entire squad is up for sale.
The 32 year-old Eto’o now looks set to join Willian at Chelsea shortly, with the Brazilian having signed at Stamford Bridge yesterday, and will compete with Fernando Torres, Demba Ba, Romelu Lukaku and Andre Schurrle for a place up front in the Blues team.
