Manchester United tell Barcelona to name price for Alex Song

Manchester United have told Barcelona to name their price for Alex Song in an attempt to wrap up a quick deal, reports Spanish newspaper Sport.

The former Arsenal midfielder has struggled to break into the first team at the Nou Camp since signing in the summer of 2012, giving Manchester United hope to convince him to come back to the Premier League.

David Moyes was originally interested in signing Song last summer before renewing his interest in the player in January but with the Cameroonian international settled in Barcelona, Manchester United failed to strike a deal.

However, the player is starting to grow tired of his bit-part role under Gerardo Martino and is reportedly ready to consider a move to Old Trafford.

Manchester United are preparing for a revolutionary summer with a €150m warchest available for transfers. Song is seen as a cornerstone to Moyes' summer transfer plans and wants to seal a quick deal.

To that end, Manchester United officials have asked Barcelona to name their price for Song and have told them that they will be willing to pay a reasonable fee for his signature if it means the transfer can be wrapped up swiftly.

Although no price is speculated for Song, it is likely Barcelona will look to claim most of the £15m they paid Arsenal to bring him to the Nou Camp. Thanks to a lack of playing time, it is likely his valuation has fallen over the last 18 months.
