Rumour: Barcelona offer Alex Song to Manchester United for £8m
Alex Song set for Manchester United move from Barcelona
FC Barcelona are set to sell Alex Song this summer after the Cameroonian’s disappointing spell at the Camp Nou.
After signing for around £16million for the Catalans in 2012, the defensive midfielder has been unreliable and sporting director Andoni Zubizaretta reportedly wants to sell him as a summer clear out seems imminent at the club following a disappointing season.
Barcelona are reportedly selling Song for only half the price they acquired him for – €10m (£8m).
Manchester United could benefit from acquiring the 26-year-old as they evidently lack proper cover for their defence. He could also free up Marouane Fellaini to play a role in midfield.
With Louis van Gaal rumoured to be appointed soon, the move seems likely along with a bunch of other signings.
