Eto’o completes Chelsea switch

Chelsea have completed the signing of Cameroon international Samuel Eto’o, according to BBC Sport.

The deal sees the 32 year old reunited with manager Jose Mourinho, who he played under during Inter Milan’s treble winning 2009/10 campaign, and appears to all but end the club’s pursuit of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

The Blues have had two bids for the England international rejected by the Premier League champions, and are now unlikely to table a third offer before the transfer window closes on Monday evening.

Eto’o, who has signed a one-year contract at Stamford Bridge, became the world’s best paid footballer when he moved to Russia two years ago though he taken a large pay-cut to move to the Premier League.

He is the second player to swap Makhackala for West London this week, after Brazil international Willian was granted a work-permit to secure his own move to Chelsea.

Anzhi have been going through a process of selling a number of their key players as they look to comply with UEFA’s financial fair play rules.
