Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o has revealed that he plans to return to La Liga to end his career.

The Cameroonian international was the Blues’ hero yesterday (Sunday), as Manchester United were put to the sword in a 3-1 defeat in west London.

Eto’o bagged a hat-trick for his Chelsea side, in the process doubling his goal tally for the Blues, but he’s made it clear that beyond his current contract it’s an old club that’s on his mind.

"I'll always like Barca, but I personally prefer Mallorca. My son has pressured me to finish my career there, as he is from there,” he told Cadena Cope.

"I have signed on at Chelsea for the entire season and will try to enjoy it. [But] later on, I will go to Mallorca."

32-year-old Eto’o spent four years with Mallorca between 2000 and 2004, becoming a cult hero with the club before moving to Barcelona.

He subsequently signed for Inter Milan in 2009, before a two-year stint with Anzhi Makhachkala in Russia.

However, Jose Mourinho persuaded the marksman to work with him once again, bringing the veteran to Stamford Bridge in a bold move at the start of the current season.

Neither Eto’o, Fernando Torres or Demba Ba have really made the striking position their own at Chelsea so far this season, but that could change after his match-winning treble and the Spaniard’s subsequent injury.
