Now a Chelsea Player

Cameroon star striker Samuel Eto’o Fils has finally moved to Premier League side Chelsea Football Club of England. Chelsea signed Eto’o on a free transfer from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala on a one-year-deal.

The transfer will also join Samuel Eto’o with his former boss at Inter Milan and current Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho. Both won the 2010 Champions League with Inter Milan.

The four-time African Footballer of the Year will also be accompanied to Chelsea by his Anzhi team mate 25 year old Brazil attacking midfielder Willian. Both players left Anzhi after its billionaire owner Suleyman Kerimov decided to significantly reduce the club’s budget.

Mourinho moved for Eto’o after two Chelsea bids for Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney were rejected.
