Manchester United To Rival West Ham For Midfield Star

By in News

Louis Van Gaal is set to battle it out with Sam Allardyce over the permanent signing of midfielder Alex Song.

åÊ

The Barcelona star joined West Ham on a season-long loan deal during the summer from Barcelona, and has impressed on his return to the Premier League.

åÊ

The former Cameroon international has played a key part in the Hammer‰Ûªs incredible start to the season, and Alardyce is desperate to secure a permanent deal for the former Arsenal man.

åÊ

The 27-year-old may have a number of offers on the table though at the end of the season, and, according to the Express, Manchester United could be lining up a surprise offer.

åÊ

Barca boss Luis Enrique is keen to offload Song at the end of the season, with it apparent that he has no future at the Nou Camp.

åÊ

United have been linked with a number of midfield targets already this month, with Kevin Strootman and Arturo Vidal reportedly their main priorities.

åÊ

Should they fail to land either of the duo, Van Gaal may look to better West Ham‰Ûªs lucrative offer to bring Song to Old Trafford.
