Barcelona President Joan Laporta has confirmed that Manchester City have made a tasty offer to rag Euro nemesis Samuel Eto’o…

At the studio’s of iCatfm, Catalunya Radio, the likeable Barca top man revealed today that Eto’o ‘has had a stratospheric offer from City that if he accepts, will make him the best paid player in the world.’

Laporta went on to say that Eto’o would like to stay at the Nou Camp but City’s would be a difficult offer to refuse. Furthermore, he added that were Eto’o to leave, then Barca would continue to pursue David Villa, remarking that Villa and Eto’o would be “perfectamente compatibles.”

This backs up the stories knocking around the Vital MC Forums that Barca have accepted City’s offer for the brilliant striker.
