Alex Song has made just 20 appearances for the under-achieving Barcaleno this season; the ability of the intelligent midfielder is going to waste sitting on the bench in Spain, and could make a move the premiership on the cheap.
Song served Arsenal for 8 seasons before joining former team mate Cesc in 2013. But his opportunities to showcase his talents have been minimal, which is unfortunate; when in form, the former Arsenal number 17 is a real joy to watch.
Back in March he said: “If I leave Barcelona it will be to return to the Premier League.
“I will return to England one day, that’s for sure.”
Maybe as earlier as March Song was instigating a potential move back.
With Barcelona undergoing a transfer embargo, as of next season, you can seem a big transition happening; and Song will arguably be one the first to get the cut.
With a desire to leave, it seems, Song may be allowed to leave on the cheap; and with Liverpool looking for depth due to European commitments next season, and Manchester United are crying for a new lease of life in the heart of the midfield, you can see a potential bid happening.
A reason why United fans should be excited of the potential transfer is what Song adds to Robin van Persie; the Dutchmen has struggled with injuries this season and hasn’t proved his capabilities in front of goal.
Song and Van Persie were outstanding at Arsenal were unplayable at times, and Song's ability to gift such chances to Manchester United number 20, is exactly what has been needed this season.
With Van Persie is running on borrowed time, you can argue his time as a prolific goal scorer are catching up with him. Maybe a move for Song would help Van Persie utilise his remaining time in football, and help Manchester United in front of goal in 2014/15 campaign.
