Tonight Samuel Eto'o's agent is in Milan to discuss personal terms with Inter president Massimo Moratti. Eto'o's wage demands have reportedly been the only aspect of the big exchange deal between Inter and Barcelona involving the Cameroon star and Zlatan Ibrahimovic that hasn't been settled yet.
Moratti was intercepted by journalists on his exit from the Saras offices today and could not avoid talking about the latest developments in this saga.
"The negotiations are ongoing and I'm confident they will end well," he said to Sky. "In the end Eto'o will accept Inter and will be ours.
"Ibrahimovic? I consider him a very serious professional, who sometimes expresses his opinions, but with us, even in difficult situations, he's always done well."
On Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola's words about Eto'o, Moratti said, "He simply said what he thinks, from a tactical point of view. He did not offload him, I think he said what he had to say from his part, that with Eto'o having already won everything in that shirt he wanted a more motivated player.
"If Ibra goes to Barca without Eto'o coming to us? I don't know about that..."
