There are some raised eyebrows here in the Football Transfer Tavern after we are told of the latest claim from the Daily Express who seem to think Manchester United could move for Alex Song.
This would only become the case if the Red Devils were to fail in their chase of Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal who they have been heavily linked with over the last couple of months and who may or may not have passed several medicals depending who you believe.
Song is no longer needed at Barcelona – if he ever really was – and as one of our punters notes, he certainly knows the Premier League and what would be expected of him after his time at Arsenal.
Louis van Gaal meanwhile has got the Red Devils in better shape than they have been in a long time and as our regulars note over a pint and game of darts, United are serious contenders this season – and a massively attractive prospect for any player to join.
United fans. What do you think of the links with Song? Are you glad Van Gaal has got a back up plan in case the Vidal move fails? Let us know your thoughts below.
