Samuel Eto'o in Ligue 1 talks as ex-Barcelona, Chelsea forward plots move
Samuel Eto'o has said he is talking to Ligue 1 clubs about a move as he looks to finish his career in France.
The 37-year-old former Barcelona, Inter Milan and Chelsea forward is a free agent after a three-year spell in Turkey with Antalyaspor and Konyaspor, and is looking to join the 13th club of his professional career.
"I'm still looking at the market. I'll take my decision in the next few days," Eto'o said. "If I told you I'm not talking to certain French clubs, I would be lying, because through my lawyer, I have said that I'm open to offers from France. We have offers. We're going to see which suits me best, for the end of my career, and I will make my choice.
"What I want is to keep playing football. I want to play for another two seasons and then end my career and start a new life."
After a career spanning more than two decades, Eto'o's motivation remains untainted, and even though he admitted his physical powers may have waned, he says his opponents will still find it tougher than him on the pitch.
"I know how to score goals, that's what I've done all my life and that's what I'll continue doing," he added.
"It's more difficult for defenders because there comes a time when you don't have the pace you had, but even if I'm not as fast as I was when I was 20, I am still quick and I make up for the rest with experience."
