Samuel Eto’o to rent Andrew Flintoff’s £2.5m mansion
Freddie to get a “super lodger” in his posh pad
As Samuel Eto’o inches closer to earning £192,000-a-week after tax at Manchester City, The Mirror are reporting that he has already organised some suitable accommodation for his family in northern England.
Freddie Flintoff owns a £2.5m mansion in Hale, but has since has moved his family to another home in the relatively-nearby Cheshire village of Mottram St Andrew (on land once owned by Mark Hughes). Hence, the Lancashire all-rounder is now looking for a lodger who is happy to piss away an outrageous amount of rent:
Barcelona ace Eto’o is set to move into a Georgian style house in the plush village of Hale owned by cricket ace Flintoff, who is renting out the property for around £20,000-a-month – a fraction of Eto’o's £200,000-a-week wages.
The Spoiler is a little confused as to why Eto’o would rent a place in England, when he could easily afford to buy one outright. Is he waiting for market conditions to improve, or is he not looking to stay on our tiny island for very long?
