Samuel Eto'o joins Chelsea FC on one-year deal

Eto'o previously worked under Mourinho at Inter Milan and was a member of the team that claimed an unprecedented treble of Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League titles in 2010. Willian and Eto'o are among a number of players to have been moved on by Anzhi after the Russian side's billionaire owner Suleiman Kerimov decided to restructure the club and drastically shrink their budget.

London: Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o has joined Chelsea on a one-year contract, the Premier League giants announced on Thursday.

The 32-year-old arrives from Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala on a free transfer, in a move that may signal the end of Chelsea's pursuit of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

Chelsea have had two bids for Rooney rejected and manager Jose Mourinho recently admitted that he had a "Plan B" in case their pursuit of the England international did not come off.
