Samuel Eto'o agrees terms for a move to Inter Milan

According to his agent, Barcelona's Cameroon scorer Samuel Eto'o has agreed terms for a move to Inter Milan. Eto'o is likely to switch from Barca in a swap deal that will see Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic join the Catalans.

REUTERS - Barcelona's Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o has agreed personal terms with Inter Milan, his agent said on Thursday as a swap deal involving Zlatan Ibrahimovic moved closer.

After another meeting with Inter officials in Milan, Josep Mesalles said a deal had been reached and he would now go back to Barcelona to settle matters there.

"The only problem is a loyalty bonus with Barcelona. It should be settled in a week or so," he was quoted as telling the ANSA news service after leaving the meeting.

Inter's Sweden striker Ibrahimovic, who injured his hand in the Italian champions' friendly defeat by Chelsea in California this week, has yet to agree terms with European champions Barca.

The complicated swap deal, which involves Barcelona also paying cash, could see Barca midfielder Aleksandr Hleb moving to Inter on loan if Eto'o and Ibrahimovic sign.
