Barcelona, June 14 (ANI): Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o demanded an astounding 12 million euros a year from Manchester City.
Should he get it, Cameroonian star would become the richest player in the Premier League.
Eto'o knows City's oil-rich owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan wants a superstar to drive their Champions League ambitions, News of the World reports.
This follows a week after Real Madrid's signing of two world-record transfer fees for Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo.
At a staggering 200,000 pounds a week, a five-year contract will set Sheikh Mansour back by 51 million pounds.
Earlier, Manchester United, Liverpool and Inter Milan had inquired about the striker's services and all were quoted the same wages.
The player's reasoning is based on being out of contract at Barcelona next summer and being available on a free transfer. (ANI)
