Barcelona debating selling midfield star to United

Published Add your comment

Barcelona are said to be debating whether or not to let former Arsenal star Alex Song join Manchester United in January, according to the Express.

The 26-year-old has been a fringe player since arriving at the Nou Camp in 2012, and with interest being shown in him from the Premier League champions, the Catalan club is in the process of considering it's options regarding his future.

Song himself is said to be unhappy about the lack of playing time he has been offered at Barca, but the club are understandably sceptical about allowing him to leave, having dished out £26million only last year.

With Barcelona seemingly wanting at least £16million paid back in order to allow Song to leave, and keen to make the right decision concerning whether or not to actually let him leave, it looks as though a deal in the summer is the more likely of options. That may not stop David Moyes from launching a pursuit of the midfielder however, particular after failing to lure Song's teammate Cesc Fabregas to Old Trafford this summer. 

The Cameroon international is said to be willing to give one last effort at forcing his way into new coach Gerardo Martino's plans but it's likely that if he fails, a move to United would very much be an appealing prospect.
