Samuel Eto'o withdrew his lawsuit against FC Barcelona according to an article published in FOX Sports. The lawsuit was estimated at $4 million with interest that was not paid to Eto'o when he left Barca for Inter Milan in the year 2010.

The Superior Court of Catalunya in Spain submitted the letter concerning Eto'o's decision to FC Barcelona. La Blaugrana made a statement about the letter and Eto'o's intention to end his legal battle with the club.

Eto'o is currently with the emerging giant from the Russian Premier League called Anzhi Makhachkala. He has been with the club since leaving Inter Milan in the year 2011.

It is not known what may have prompted Eto'o to withdraw his lawsuit against La Blaugrana. What can be said is that the news will benefit Barca when it comes to its adherence to the UEFA Financial Fair Play Act.

La Blaugrana can have free rein to sign players who will eventually replace Xavi Hernandez, Seydou Keitel and Carle Puyols without the loss of money in a lawsuit. The following is great news for La Blaugrana and its supporters.
