Eto'o joins Chelsea on one-year contract

Johannesburg, Aug 30 (ANI): Anzhi Makhachkala's Samuel Eto'o has joined Chelsea on a one-year contract, in a move that may signal the end of the club's pursuit of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

According to Sport24, Eto'o expressed that he was happy to be with the club but also anxious because he wanted to start playing as soon as possible.

Eto'o previously played under Mourinho at Inter Milan and was a member of the team that won an unprecedented treble of Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League titles in 2010, the report said.

Chelsea have had two bids for Rooney rejected and manager Jose Mourinho recently revealed that he had a 'Plan B' in case their pursuit of the England international did not come off, the report added. (ANI)
