The footballer Samuel Eto’o will earn ’60p Per Second’ at football club FC Anzhi Makhachkala! Nice work if you can get it! The Cameroon striker will earn £350,000 per week and £17.9m a year after tax in a 3 year deal making him the world's highest-paid player


The super-rich Russians are paying Inter Milan £21million for the 30-year-old Cameroon striker who jets in to complete the formalities today (Weds 24th Aug). Anzhi are owned by billionaire oil tycoon Suleiman Kerimov who has sanctioned the mammoth wage deal that will see Eto'o surge past the rest of the world's top earners on the football rich list.
