The following is the complete announcement:

FC Barcelona has received notification of the verdict issued by the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia, which accepts a document in which the player Samuel Eto’o has decided to withdraw his claim against FC Barcelona. In this claim, the player demanded from the Club payment of 3 million euros, plus interest, as a share of his transfer fee to Inter Milan.

This motion ratifies the sentence by the Barcelona Social Court of April 18, 2010, which rejected the claim made by the player against FC Barcelona and definitively brings these proceedings to a close.

FC Barcelona would like to publicly thank Samuel Eto’o, one of the great players of our era, for his willingness to resolve this dispute.
