Could Samuel Eto’o be headed to Beşiktaş?

Updated: July 25, 2016

According to NTV Spor Antalyaspor’s star player Samuel Eto’o could be on his way to Beşiktaş on a free transfer, despite still having two years left on his contract.

Beşiktaş are looking for a replacement for Mario Gómez but need to work within their financial restrictions as they’re still under a Financial Fair play settlement. The 36-year old Eto’o has had an excellent season for Antalyaspor, scoring 19 goals in 29 Süper Lig appearances.

According to NTV Spor Eto’o has a certain clause in his contract which would allow him to join Beşiktaş on a free transfer, the specifics of this clause were not mentioned. But some rumours suggest that he has a clause to join any team that has qualified for the UEFA Champions League on a free transfer if he so wishes.

Whether Samuel Eto’o will join Beşiktaş remains to be seen, but the former Barcelona, Chelsea and Internazionale striker has never made it a big secret that he wouldn’t mind wearing the black and white jersey, openly flirting with the club on numerous occasions in the media.
