Samuel Eto'o set to move to Uzbek side Kuruvchi?

Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o is said to be considering a move to Uzbekestan club Kuruvchi. The Cameroon international has been to Uzbekestan to hold talks with Kuruvchi officials over a possible move to the Uzbek league leaders.

While at first glance the story seems like just another Rivaldo to Spurs or Ronaldinho to Manchester City story, it is believed that Kuruvchi have offered the 27-year-old striker a staggering €40m for one season.

Despite interest from a number of European clubs and rumours of a Drogba-Eto'o swap deal, the Cameroon hitman is said to be seriously considering a one year move to Uzbekestan. With €40m being offered in the deal, it brings a whole new meaning to the idea of a gap-year.
