Alex Song has completed his move to Barcelona. The Cameroon midfielder underwent a medical this morning and Arsenal confirmed the deal was complete this afternoon.
He’ll be presented later this evening at the traditional Joan Gamper game as Barcelona take on Sampdoria, 20 years after the Catalans won their first ever European Cup against the Italians.
He has gone down a well worn path in recent seasons, following players like Cesc Fabregas, Thierry Henry and Marc Overmars to the Camp Nou. Song’s versatility will endear him to the Barcelona manager, playing in midfield or centre-half will increase his options of playing time, and he’ll be hoping his move turns out better than the last Alex we sold them.
Arsenal said, “Everyone at Arsenal would like to thank Alex for his contribution to the Club and wish him the best of luck for the future.”
