Barcelona ready to sell Alex Song

Published 18 Comments

Barcelona midfielder Alex Song is set for a Premier League return, with Manchester United the favourites to land the Cameroon international.

According to Portuguese newspaper A Bola, Barcelona boss Gerardo Martino has finally decided to let Song leave the Camp Nou.

Song is believed to be unhappy with his lack of playing time at Barcelona and is likely to be tempted by a Premier League return.

The long-term future of the 26-year-old was previously unclear, with Martino unsure whether Song had a role to play in his first-team.

And now it's emerged that Barcelona will allow Song to leave the Catalan giants, with Manchester United primed and ready to swoop.

David Moyes has been heavily linked with a move for the ex-Arsenal star, and these latest developments are likely to boost the Scottish tactician, who is still in the market for midfield reinforcements despite the arrival of Marouane Fellaini on transfer deadline day.

Barcelona will be looking to recoup much of the £16 million they paid Arsenal to secure the player's services last summer, and with a rumoured transfer war chest of £60 million, Manchester United have Song in their sights.
