Samuel Eto'o's agent has announced that the Barcelona striker has agreed personal terms with Inter Milan.
Negotiations have been ongoing for some time as the two clubs work towards a swap deal that would take Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Camp Nou.
There had initially been fears that Eto'o's wage demands would scupper such a switch but matters have now been resolved following another meeting with Inter officials.
The Cameroonian's representative Josep Mesalles insists an agreement is in place and he will now return to Barcelona to settle everything there.
"It's done," said Mesalles. "We have reached an agreement with Inter.
"Samuel talked to (coach Jose) Mourinho yesterday and is very happy to be wearing the Nerazzurri shirt.
"All the details have been filed."
Reports suggest that Eto'o will join on a five-year contract, although a transfer is unlikely to be finalised until next week.
Mesalles explained to ANSA: "The only problem is a loyalty bonus with Barcelona. It should be settled in a week or so.
Inter's Swedish striker Ibrahimovic has yet to agree terms with European champions Barca, while Alexander Hleb is also expected to move to the Serie A club as part of the exchange.
