Alex Song signed 5-year deal with Barca

Alex Song signed 5-year deal with Barca

The Cameroon international has left Arsenal for Barcelona for a fee of £15.

Song had left the French side SC Bastia and joined the Gunners in 2005. In Arsenal he earned 206 caps during seven years.

The 24-year-old had a medical on Monday and Barcelona’s doctor Ricard Pruna said: ‘He has a very low fat percentage and very good quality muscle. All tests have gone well and he is available for the coach.’

‘I’m very happy to be here because everyone knows that this is the best team in the world and playing at a club like Barca is something I wanted when I was young. I hope the team will continue to win; this is a winning team, they win everything. I will give my best in training and when I get the chance to play,’ said Song.

The Catalan’s boss, Vilanova, said that Song can provide the team with a lot of things, he’s very good. He recovers the ball well and then can do good things with it.

Song is Barca’s second signing this summer after Jordi Alba from Valencia.
