ROME - Samuel Eto'o has agreed on terms for a move to Inter Milan, his agent Jose Maria Mesalles says.
Mesalles emerged from two hours of meetings with Inter representatives yesterday to tell the waiting press that a deal had been made, which was later confirmed by Inter's transfer specialist Marco Branca.
"The only problem is his loyalty bonus with Barcelona," Mesalles said.
Eto'o is due to arrive in Milan on Monday or Tuesday to put pen to paper.
Mesalles spent three days negotiating with Inter before a swap deal was reached that will see Inter Milan's Sweden forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic join the Catalans for R550million, with Eto'o and Alexander Hleb (on loan) moving in the other direction.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Eto'o will sign a five-year deal with Inter Milan worth about R11,5 million or more a year. - Sapa-AFP
