Barcelona ace Samuel Eto'o wants £200,000-a-week to join Manchester City.

Barcelona ace Samuel Eto'o wants £200,000-a-week to join Manchester City.

The News of the World says the Cameroon star has asked Manchester City to pay him an astonishing ONE MILLION Euros a MONTH - after tax - as he seeks to cash in on football's money-mad summer.

At 12million Euros a year, cash in hand, that will cost City and boss Mark Hughes a staggering £200,000 a week. At current exchange rates, a five-year contract will set Sheikh Mansour back £51m.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Inter Milan are among the other clubs that have inquired about the striker's services - and all have been quoted the same wages.

Eto'o has long been nick-named "the banker" by his Cameroon teammates for the way he has set himself up financially since joining Real Madrid as a teenager.
