Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o is demanding almost £2.75m from Spanish club Barcelona after his transfer to Italian side Inter Milan. The amount represents 15% of the US$29 million (£17.7m) fee which the Inter paid Barcelona in July. His demand is based on a Spanish rule that a player should get 15% of the amount of his transfer to another Spanish club. If the parties fail to reach a solution the matter could got to court. But Barcelona argues it does not owe Eto'o anything because the rule is an agreement between Spanish clubs and that the percentage payment is the responsibility of the club that buys the player.
