Barcelona president Joan Laporta hopes Samuel Eto'o can agree terms with Inter Milan.

Yesterday, Laporta insisted a deal for Inter striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic would still go through, independent of whether Eto'o became part of a swap agreement or not.

Later, the Barca president was more encouraging, saying: "Samuel will be joining one of the best clubs in the world with a very good coach and a president who has shown a great desire to buy him."
