The latest player to be linked with a move to United is perhaps a strange one; Samuel Eto’o. The 32-year old striker is being forced out of Anzhi due to the owners new regime of cutting costs, and according to various media outlets, his agent is set to meet Manchester United officials this week.
Chelsea have been heavily linked with the Cameroonian footballer, which you can understand as they definitely need a striker. Do United really need another one though? I’d say definitely not. Even if Rooney were to be sold, there is still more than enough strikers at the club.
The main stumbling block that could hold the deal up would be the players salary according to the Metro. I still can’t see this deal ever happening though, Eto’o isn’t getting any younger, he’d cost a lot and there would be no sell-on value.
