Manchester United to miss out on Barcelona star?

Manchester United have been dealt a blow in their alleged pursuit of Alex Song as the Barcelona midfielder edged closer to a £10million move to Inter Milan.

TalkSPORT reports how the Premier League champions have been heavily linked with a move for the 26-year-old, who looks set to leave Camp Nou at the end of the season.

Barcelona are believed to have placed a £12million price-tag on the Cameroon international's head, but could accept Inter Milan's offer - which is slightly under their asking price - in order to get Song off the wage-bill.

Red Devils boss David Moyes has also been credited with an interest in bringing the player to Old Trafford in a cut-price deal this summer, after Tata Martino deemed the former Arsenal star surplus to first-team requirements.

However, Manchester United could now miss out on Song's signature, with Inter prepared to pay him around £80,000-a-week and hand him a three-year contract at the San Siro.

Song has failed to ever really establish himself since joining Barcelona from Arsenal in 2012, and as the London Metro reported previously expressed a desire to return to the Premier League.

But, it now looks like he'll snub Manchester United's interest in order to take up a new challenge in Serie 'A', with Inter ready to hand him the chance to rediscover his best form in Italy.
