Samuel Eto’o has denied meeting Rafa Benitez and reiterated his desire to stay at Barcelona, despite being linked with Liverpool and Milan.
The Cameroon striker is reported to be becoming frustrated with media reports linking him with a move away from Camp Nou, and in particular, the persistent reports claiming he had met with representatives from Liverpool on Monday.
“It is just a huge lie,” Eto’o’s agent, Jose Maria Mesalles, was quoted in Sport .
“Eto’o was in Belgium with the Cameroon squad on Monday night.
“We do not understand why these flase stories keep appearing.
“The club knows all too well that he is very happy at Barcelona and wants to stay.
“He has a very good contract and wants to comply with that.”
Mesalles also dismissed claims that Eto’o would hold secret meetings with any clubs before notifying Barca in advance.
“We are not going to listen to any offers. The club will be the one that receives the offers, we never hear about them first,” the agent said.
“It is clear that he wants to stay,” he added.
“It is not about a club meeting a clause in his contract. Eto’o wants to play for Barca for many years to come and that is that.”
