Budding journalist Blue Lad Scragg sent us the following article.

I have heard from a reliable source that Barcelona striker, Samuel Eto’o has signed a pre-contract deal at Manchester City.

I do not know whether or not this is true but this story has been floating around the papers for a while now. It states that Hughes is looking to pull off a sensational £20m deal with Eto’o especially as his current Barcelona contract runs out next year.

The Cameroonian footballer has had some well-publicised arguments with the people at Barca and sources say has been looking for a way out for a while now.

City bosses have indicated that Eto’o has been won over by clubs ‘Vision for the Future.’ Barcelona have also privately stated that they are willing to sell him.

Here is what Barcelona`s President, Joan Laporta had to say on the matter:

‘The market is very dynamic and there could be surprises. He’s a wanted man and we know he’ll receive offers’

We have been promised big signings this summer and they don’t come any bigger than Samuel Eto’o.

Eto’o is 28-years-old and is currently at the peak of his career.
