Samuel Eto'o is leaning towards rejecting an offer from Manchester City and staying with Barcelona, according to the striker's agent.
Sky Sources understand Premier League club City have lodged a £25million bid for the Cameroon international.
However, Eto'o's agent, Josep Maria Mesalles, claims the attacker is more inclined to remain at Camp Nou for the remainder of his contract, which expires in 2010.
"If there is not a 180-degree turnaround then he will stay with Barcelona," Eto'o's representative told ONA FM.
According to Spanish reports, Eto'o is unhappy with the way that he is seemingly being forced out by Barca and he could decide to stay in a bid to upset the club's plans.
This scenario would then allow him to leave the Spanish giants on a free transfer under the Bosman ruling next summer.
