Chelsea latest: Eto'o enjoying life but loan duo unsure over futures

Samuel Eto'o

All the latest news, views and transfer rumours from Stamford Bridge...

Chelsea are still basking in their 4-0 thrashing of Spurs, where striker Samuel Eto'o played a key role by scoring the first goal and wining the penalty for the second, and the Cameroon striker believes that he will continue to add to his 300 club goals over his career, despite question marks over his age, with the former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker turning 33 yesterday.

“I am happy here [at Chelsea]. My age is not important," Eto'o said. "I work the same like Oscar or Eden Hazard. I have more experience and this is good for the team. It is an amazing thing [to score 300 club goals] but I have maybe two or three years more. I think I’m going to score more goals.”

Whilst Eto'o may see his future at Stamford Bridge, there are still question marks over goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. The Belgian is coming to the end of his third year at Atletico Madrid having been loaned out to the La Liga club, but recent speculation had suggested that he could make a move to Atletico's biggest rivals Real Madrid, though Courtois says Chelsea will decide his fate.

"Everyone knows that I have a contract with Chelsea and I am happy at Atletico Madrid," said Courtois. "I have never heard anything like that [about Real]. I am focussed on Atletico and I belong to Chelsea. If someone in Europe wants me they must first speak with Chelsea."

"The English club will decide what they want to do. Everything must go through there, and if nothing happens, then there is nothing."

But another Chelsea loanee, Marko Marin, suggests that he could extend his stay at Sevilla rather than return to West London, if he is guaranteed first-team football in Andalusia. Marin has failed to make an impact at Stamford Bridge, and it seems after an influx of attacking midfielders and wingers, it appears Marin won't be sticking around for long.

"If both Sevilla and me are happy to stay I can stay here forever. We'll see what happens in the summer. The first is to play, being fit and helping the team in the end of the season and then we will decide. If the fans want, Monchi (the sporting director) wants and the coach wants, why not?" Marin said.

"But the most important thing is to be fit and play. Speaking about a permanent move before that is not worthy because I can't help the team if I do not play."
