Inter Milan will see €99 million cleared from the books thanks to their sale of Samuel Eto'o to Anzhi.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Inter have accepted a bid of €27 million from the Russians for Eto'o.

Inter will benefit from the €12m per season wages saved until 2014, the date his contract was set to expire.

Including taxes, that figure is doubled for accounting purposes, so becomes €24m per season for three years. In total, that's €72 million saved in wages, plus the fee, which comes to €99 million.

“Thank you to everyone. I will always support Inter and ask just one thing – win even without me,” Eto'o told teammates over the weekend.
