Manchester United in Napoli fight for £10m Barca star

Manchester United midfield target Alex Song is being linked with a move to Napoli.

The Barcelona star has been linked with a move away from the Nou Camp for months, with reports in December claiming he could make a £10million exit in the transfer window.

Premier League clubs are among those to be linked, with The Daily Star reporting that Red Devils boss David Moyes was keen to add the player to bolster his squad in the New Year.

And, the Manchester United manager has subsequently been linked with a number of midfielders after a disappointing first half of the season at Old Trafford.

Claudio Marchisio is one name reported to be in the Red Devils frame, whilst Koke has also been linked with a move from La Liga.

If Moyes still wants Song from Barca, then he faces competition from Italy, with Le 10 Sport reporting that the Cameroonian international is in the sights of the Serie ‘A’ side.

The report cites speculation in Italy when claiming that Rafa Benitez’s side continue to negotiate with the Catalan giants, with Juan Zuniga potentially part of the deal.

Whether Gerardo Martino would be willing to let the player leave the Blaugrana remains to be seen, but Song has only been a bit-part player for the Spanish giants since his arrival.

And, if they are willing to let the player leave, then it remains to be seen if Manchester United will look to bring Song back to England.
