Sampdoria insist Samuel Eto’o wants to join them, but “nobody can figure out who is in charge at Everton.”
The transfer saga is dragging on, as Samp announced via several interviews over the last few days that Eto’o had agreed terms for a transfer.
They were waiting for him to extricate himself from the Everton contract, but that is taking far longer than expected.
“I haven’t been working in football for long and can say this is a weird working environment,” said Sampdoria President – and movie producer – Massimo Ferrero on Sky Sport Italia.
“People say one thing and then do another. Nobody can figure out who is in charge at Everton, but we are getting to a breakthrough.
“What are the chances of the move happening? Let’s be prudent and say 50 per cent. Eto’o is a reliable man and is very eager to come to Samp. We’re down to the last details.”
Ferrero was pictured talking to agent Claudio Vigorelli this evening.
