Samuel Eto’o wants to join Roma if Pallotta & co can match his salary demands. The summer transfer market does not officially open until July 1, but Roma are already busy preparing a competitive team in order to challenge Juventus for the Italian Serie A and the other great European teams for the UEFA Champions League.
Samuel Eto’o is Rudi Garcia‘s great fascination because he needs experienced players to win. Although, the strong Cameroonian striker expressed his desire to play for Roma he has to significantly lower his salary. Sources from UK stated that Eto’o’s request is approximately £60k-a-week. At this price the deal may not be closed because Roma do not want to invest so much on a player who is 33 year old.
Sabatini is trying to polish the difference between the demand and the offer but this deal could come to a happy conclusion soon.
