Barcelona have agreed personal terms with Real Mallorca striker Samuel Eto'o but still face a nervous wait before the projected 14.5million deal is completed.
They must be patient as Mallorca are obliged to ask Real Madrid, who own half the rights to the prolific frontman, whether they want to sign Eto'o.
Madrid would be able to obtain Eto'o by paying 7.25m to gain sole possession, or they would be entitled to half the fee which Barcelona are prepared to pay.
The Cameroonian is wary about rejoining Madrid, who he briefly played with earlier in his career, because of a likely lack of first-team opportunities.
