England a possibility for Eto’o

Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto’o admits he is questioning his future with the Serie A club.Eto’o, who finished last season as the league’s third leading goalscorer with 21 goals in 35 games, has refused to rule out trying his luck in the English Premier League.

The Cameroon international had committed himself to the Italian club towards the end of the season, but it looks now like he has had a change of heart about leaving the San Siro.

“It is true that I have a few offers,” the former Barcelona player said.

“I have a month off now to evaluate all of them and decide what to do.”

“I’m 30, I’m close to my final big contract and we’ll have to see whether I should stay or go.”

“My eventual departure is not to try to earn 100,000 or 200,000 euros more. What matters in my career is being happy in a city, playing for a big club where I can enjoy myself.”

Eto’o was a key player for Inter this term where he enjoyed his most prolific campaign since joining the club from Barca in 2009.

But with several Premier League clubs expressing interest in the marksman’s services, he admits he has thought about playing his football in England.

“It’s an idea that I have had in my head for a while, it all depends on finding the right club. I’ve had offers from good teams,” he said.

But Eto’o will not be heading back to the Nou Camp.

“A return to Barcelona would seem impractical, something impossible.”

Losing Eto’o would be a massive blow for Inter and their president Massimo Moratti.

“I don’t think any of the others will get offended if I say Eto’o has been our best player this season,” Moratti said in May.

“He’s played at such a high level all year.”

“In comparison it would be like taking Messi out of the Barcelona team – without him they may not have achieved everything they did.”
