Eto'o excused from training

Samuel Eto'o took no part in today's open training session, fuelling speculation that his Inter career is over.

The Cameroon striker arrived at Appiano Gentile earlier this afternoon but was given permission to leave in advance.

The former Barcelona man thus took no part in the session with his teammates in front of 2,500 fans.

Eto'o is expected to complete a big money move to Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala at some point this week.

Stories suggest that Anzhi officials will conclude talks with the Nerazzurri during a meeting on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the striker himself will undergo a medical at the Villa Stuart complex in Rome tomorrow.

Eto'o is expected to cost around €30m and he should sign a three-year deal, allegedly worth €15m a season.

Ivan Ramiro Cordoba, Yuto Nagatomo and Emiliano Viviano were also excused from today's Nerazzurri training because of injuries.
