Barcelona's Eto'o pricing himself out of Man Utd move

Barcelona ace Samuel Eto'o is pricing himself out of a move to Manchester United.

The People says United's bid to land Eto'o could fall apart with the player demanding a staggering £12.5million signing-on fee.

The Barcelona star (above) wants to cash in on any move away from the Nou Camp, with his contract having only one year left to run and the transfer fee at £22million.

But the huge golden handshake could easily dissuade United.

Manchester City are also interested in the Champions League winner, but have been told they would have to pay 1million euros a month in wages AFTER TAX, having already offered a £30m transfer fee.
