West Ham drop Samuel Eto’o deal after staggering £120k-a-week wage demands [Metro]

West Ham have decided against signing Samuel Eto’o after the striker demanded a ludicrous £120,000-a-week, according to news site Metro.

Eto’o was released by Chelsea in the summer but showed enough last season to prove that he can still cut it in a top European league.

West Ham, lacking depth up front ever with Andy Carroll perpetually injured, tried to keep him in the Premier League, and London, only for a deal to be scuppered by Eto’o’s insane wage demands.

It must be remembered that this is a man that was made the highest-earning footballer in the world during his time with Anzhi in Russia so his requests probably seem reasonable from his perspective!
