Barca desperate to keep Eto'o

04 Jun 2009 - 07:36:53

Barcelona president Joan Laporta is hoping to keep hold of Samuel Eto'o, but is expecting to receive offers for the Cameroon striker.

Eto'o, 28, has successfully rehabilitated his career with the Catalan club after coming close to leaving last summer.

The former Real Madrid and Real Mallorca striker has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs in recent months, but Laporta is optimistic that he will start next season at the Camp Nou.

"Samuel has a contract and we're very happy with him," he said.

"We want him to continue with us and for him to retire in the Barca shirt.

"But the market is very dynamic and there could be surprises. He's a wanted man and we know he'll receive offers.

"We want him to continue, he has a contract and let's hope he renews it."
