Samuel Eto'o: Could return to his former club Mallorca

Samuel Eto'o: Could return to his former club Mallorca

Eto'o is out of contract in the summer after joining Chelsea on a one-year deal from Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala last August and it remains to be seen where the 32-year-old will be plying his trade next term.

The prolific Cameroon international, who scored a hat-trick in Chelsea's 3-1 Barclays Premier League win over Manchester United on Sunday, is unlikely to be short of offers but he does admit his son has been encouraging him to return to Spanish side Mallorca before he hangs up his boots.

Eto'o started his career with Real Madrid in Spain but it was Mallorca where he first shone during a four-year spell from 2000 before earning superstar status at Barcelona , and he still holds the Balearic Island club - who were relegated from the Primera Division last season - very dear to his heart.

Asked by Spanish radio station Cadena Cope which he likes out of La Liga's three leading teams Barcelona, Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid, Eto'o said: "I'll always like Barca, but I prefer Mallorca.

"My son has pressured me to finish (my career) there. My son is from Mallorca."

The three-times Champions League winner also admitted there was plenty he missed about life in Spain, adding: "I miss everything from there. I miss my team-mates, my friends, Barcelona, the weather, the ham, everything..."

Returning to the subject his future, Eto'o was asked how many seasons he has got at Chelsea and when he will go to Mallorca, to which the former Inter Milan man said: "At the moment, it's one season and I intend to enjoy it, then we'll see."
