Blues Reject Eto'o-Drogba Swap

The Sun claims Barca officials contacted their counterparts at Stamford Bridge regarding the potential trade, but the Blues supposedly rejected the proposition outright.
The Catalan club are keen to offload Eto’o, who is now a near certainty to follow Deco and Ronaldinho out the exit at Camp Nou after being placed on the transfer list by new boss Josep Guardiola.
London has been touted as a likely destination for the Cameroonian forward, who was strongly linked with a move to Tottenham that would have seen Spurs striker Dimitar Berbatov head the other way.
That option is not yet completely off the table, as the Blaugrana – who are also interested in Arsenal’s Emmanuel Adebayor – have been keeping a very close eye on the English capital in recent months.
Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has announced his intentions to keep hold of Drogba despite the Ivory Coast captain’s long-held desire to return to the continent, with AC Milan and Internazionale also monitoring his situation.
Hence, Barca may have to look elsewhere to offload Eto’o, meaning the 27-year-old could complete would be an amazing switch to Uzbekistani outfit Kuruvchi, who are reportedly offering €40million for the ex-Mallorca man.
