Lyon president Aulas: We could buy Barcelona's Eto'o

Olympique Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has revealed they're considering a move for Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o.

Aulas told L'Equipe: "If he wants to come, we could bring him tomorrow, Claude Puel would be pleased and we have the capacity to do so.

"However, is this the right solution? We'll be bringing a player into the dressing room with a salary not necessarily compatible with the other players of OL.

"There is a balance to find, on and off the pitch."

Aulas added: "Everything will depend on Claude. If he said tomorrow, that to win the Champions League, he must have Eto'o or Drogba, then we will attempt to make them come, even if it means we'd live a little above our means."
