Eto’o willing to take wage cut to return to Italy.
Out of contract Chelsea star Samuel Eto’o has been tipped to join his last season’s teammate Ashley Cole at Italian side AS Roma in the near future.
The 33-year old striker, who enjoyed a brilliant spell in Italy between 2009 and 2011 is hoping to enjoy similar success in the nation once again as he feels that he has plenty more to offer yet.
Much like Cole, Eto’o too had problems with Chelsea’s management and boss Jose Mourinho in particular, who forced him to move on after his one year deal at Stamford Bridge expired at the end of last season.
The Daily Mail reports that Eto’o has been in talks with Roma for the last few days and is also believed to be willing to cut down his wage demands to £3 million a year to force a switch back to Serie-A.
The Cameroon star’s experience along with Cole’s could be a big boost to Roma’s chances in the Champions League next season.
