With Chelsea already having an agonizingly gigantic roster of attacking players, Jose Mourinho is apparently very close to adding another.
When he signs his contract, he will no longer own the most valuable contract in the soccer world, and Lionel Messi will take over that spot.
The Cameroonian striker once led Jose Mourinho’s Inter squad to its famed treble in 2010 before making his big-money move to Russia the following year. Anzhi Makhachkala made him the highest-paid player in the world, something few argued at the time.
Anzhi have since found themselves in horrible financial trouble due to some major debts owed by their owner, so a firesale is under way, with Eto’o part of that umbrella. In fact, Palmeri reported that Anzhi is actually paying Eto’o €3 million ($4 million) as a buyout to send him on his way. The move comes on the heels of his Anzhi teammate Willian having already completed his move to Stamford Bridge as well.
