Cameroon international Samuel Eto’o has proposed to long-time girlfriend and mother of two of his children Tra Lou Georgette, according to sources close to the lady’s family in Ivory Coast.
The former Chelsea striker, Geogette and their two children arrived in Abidjan last weekend for a brief engagement ceremony, during which Eto’o offered a diamond ring worth €500,000 to his wife to be, who has spent nine years with him.
No date for the official wedding was given by representatives of the couple, but a family member of Geogette said the public would be notified soon.
They have been married traditionally since 2007 but are yet to hold a white wedding.
This is not the first time the Cameroon captain is offering costly jewellery to his sweetheart, in 2008, he gave her as a birthday gift a set of necklaces worth €152,500.
The 33-year-old striker is in talks with Italian side Roma for an eventual return to the Serie A but he claims clubs from five other countries are chasing him as well.
