Barcelona are ready to sell central-midfielder Alex Song on a cut price deal this summer, according to The Daily Star.

The 26-year-old, who left Arsenal for the Spanish giants in the summer of 2012, has been linked with a move back to the Premier League and his former club in recent time. Manchester United have also been credited with interest in the player's signature, but it remains to be seen as to whether new Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal makes a move for the Cameroonian international. 

The report has suggested that new Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has already told the former Gunners man that he can depart the Nou Camp in the up coming market. 

And despite Arsenal having an array of talent in the middle of the park, it appears Wenger could be ready to swoop for the star once again this summer. But do the Gunners really need him? After all they do have the likes of Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere plying their trade on the Emirates turf. 

Perhaps then, Wenger should move on and not opt to bring the midfield ace back to England's elite division. However, Song could prove a good bit of business for the Arsenal boss, especially if he can bring him back to the club on a cut price deal. 

Manchester United, on the other hand, are in desperate need of midfield recruitments. The Red Devils have struggled in the middle of the park in recent time, with the likes of Marouane Fellaini, Tom Cleverley and Michael Carrick all proving far too inconsistent. 

If expected, Van Gaal will add to his squad this summer, and surely the midfield area has to be a priority. Song would represent good value for the new Manchester United boss too and he is a proven Premier League performer. 

At just 26-years-old, Song is by no means past it and would do a good job alongside a world class midfielder at Old Trafford. It would be foolish for the new United boss to completely rule out signing the Catalans star, who has a great relationship with Robin van Persie. 

Song may not be cutting it at Barcelona, but he could still offer one of the Premier League big boys something a little different for the 2014/15 campaign.
