Arsenal has agreed to sell the second world class player this summer, as the Gunners will let their key defensive midfielder Alex Song move to Spain, where he will team up with Fabregas at Barcelona.
Both Arsenal and Barcelona have announced on their official websites that Cameroon international Alex Song will be joining the Catalans. Arsenal posted on its site:
“Arsenal Football Club can confirm that terms have been agreed for the transfer of Alex Song to Barcelona.
“Song will now travel to the Catalan club to agree personal terms and undergo a medical ahead of the proposed move.”
And Barcelona confirmed the news immediately, saying:
“FC Barcelona has agreed a deal with Arsenal FC for the transfer of Alex Song to the Camp Nou. The fee is 19million euros,” read the statement.
“The Cameroon international midfielder will sign for the next five seasons with a release clause of 80million euros.
“On Monday he’ll have a medical and then join the rest of the squad for the official team presentation at the Gamper.”
Now, Wenger probably didn’t have much choice but sell Song, but what will they do in the next season without both RVP and Song? The thing is that they didn’t look too great in their first game against Sunderland, so if the Frenchman won’t bring some tally in the midfield which can bring in a bit more creativity, the Gunners will have little chance to do too much next season.
