Alex Song To Barcelona.
On the contrary to my previous article, it appears that there may be some significant truth behind the Song to Barcelona rumour, with it being reported by The Independent that Barcelona's vice president was in London yesterday trying to clinch the £15,000,000 deal for Arsenals DM Alex Song (who's contract is not due to expire for another 2 years).
Bartomeu (Barcelona's vice president) returned to Barcelona late on August 14th, certain that Song would be in a Barcelona shirt for their first game this season, on this upcoming weekend.
Song has reportedly drawing the interest of the La Liga Giants for many years now, but this will be the closest they have come to clinching any sort of deal.
If Song leaves the Gunners this year, a replacement Defensive Midfielder will be bought in, with speculation surrounding both Yann M'Villa and Nuri Sahin about a move to the Emirates in the near future.747122
