FC Barcelona holding midfielder Alex Song could be a possible alternative over Juventus ace Arturo Vidal for Manchester United, as sporting director Andoni Zubizaretta reveals imminent exit.
Louis van Gaal could consider FC Barcelona's Alex Song in lieu of Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal
The 26-year-old , who joined the Blaugrana in 2012, saw his first-team involvement further diminish last season under the watch of Tata Martino, and with Luis Enrique at the helm, things could only get worse.
"We will see if we can find a way out in the remaining days of the market," said Zubizaretta.
With Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri recently ruling out a Vidal exit in Turin, Louis van Gaal could be looking at a quality, yet bargain, signing in Song.
The Cameroon international enjoyed the best days of his career at Arsenal, which means that he is already accustomed to the style of play in the Premier League and might only need a little time to get readjusted, which could be crucial since the proceedings have already commenced.
