Barcelona forward Samuel Eto'o recently visited New York during his vacation from Spanish La Liga side Barcelona FC to do some shopping, visit Niketown, and take in the Broadway show Avenue Q. So far, there have been no denials of the rumor that he also secretly signed a pre-contract with MLS Side New York Red Bulls, in anticipation of the opening of their new purpose built stadium in nearby Harrison, New Jersey.
This seems to be a sensible approach for the MLS club, currently propping up the table in the league's Eastern Conference. Colombian super scoring sensation Juan Pablo Angel has lost his running mate, Jozy Altidore to Spanish club Villareal and has threatened to quit MLS if manager Juan Carlos Osorio doesn't take steps to improve the squad.
