Barcelona may have hoped they had seen the last of Samuel Eto’o when they offloaded him to Inter Milan in exchange for a massively-overrated-yet-currently-free-scoring Swede, but the Cameroonian striker is causing more headaches in Catalonialand.

Sport this morning report that Eto’o is demanding fifteen per cent of his transfer fee to the Serie A giants, which works out at around €3m of a reported €20m fee.

The fifteen per cent fee is a standard term set out by the Association of Spanish Footballers (AFE) when players transfer between Spanish clubs, but Barca have quite rightly pointed out that Inter Milan are not a Spanish team.

Despite this startling geographical evidence, the Spanish paper say the Cameroonian has made a request for his share of a deal that he effectively forced via his abhorrent personality, and has now lodged a formal complaint. If Barcelona fail to stuff the extra cash into his bulging mattress, the matter will be settled in court.
