Former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o ‘open’ to joining Marseille…if wife gives the OK

Former Barcelona and Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o is open to joining Marseille – but only if his wife gives the thumbs up.



The 35-year-old is currently plying his trade for Turkish club Antalyaspor after joining them in the summer of 2015 from Sampdoria.

The Cameroonian has since gone on to score 25 goals in just over 40 games for his new club, which has attracted the interest of other sides around Europe.

Marseille, who have recently been taken over by American billionaire Frank McCourt, are one of those keen and they could make a move in January.

And, if they do, Eto’o has now revealed he could be tempted to move to France if his partner supports the idea.

“We will see, I do not want to say no. I would have to ask my wife the question, she is the boss,” Eto’o told Telefoot.
