Barcelona fans want Song sold

Published 2 Comments

This season may well be Alex Song’s last as a Barcelona player. The midfielder has made only 13 starts under Gerardo Martino this term, and this lack of regular game time has led to links with Manchester United and former club Arsenal.

And it would appear that few tears would be shed at the Camp Nou were Song to depart, with a poll conducted by Marca outlining that 80 percent of Barcelona supporters want the Cameroon international to be sold.

Song joined Barcelona from Arsenal in the summer transfer window of 2012 but has been unable to establish himself in the first-team; initially under Tito Vilanova and now Martino. With the prospects of increased inclusion beyond remote it would appear likely that Song would pursue a move away this year.

It remains to be seen if the supposed interest of Arsenal and Manchester United is genuine, but both teams are in need of a player in possession of similar attributes to the 26-year-old. With Mikel Arteta’s influence on the decline and Mathieu Flamini not a long-term solution, Song could slot back into the Arsenal midfield with minimum fuss.

At Manchester United, meanwhile, Song would likely perform more effectively in a holding position than Marouane Fellaini has done this season, while the Old Trafford club are already reported to have made a £12.5 million move to sign the player.
