Samuel Eto'o, along with the rest of his teammates, has been made available for transfer after Anzhi Makhachkala look to cut costs - apparently alerting Chelsea and Manchester United.
Who'd have thought the recruitment model of the Russian club would not be sustainable?
Anzhi made Eto'o the highest paid player in the world when he joined them in 2011, but this would reportedly not deter Chelsea or Manchester United from making a bid for the 32-year-old striker, who could be purchased for £5 million.
The agent of the player is set to fly to England this week to speak to interested parties, with Manchester United and Chelsea apparently among them, in the hope of completing a transfer before the deadline.
In Eto'o, David Moyes or Jose Mourinho would be recruiting a goalscorer of proven quality, with the Cameroon international having performed to distinction for some of the most prominent clubs in Europe.
