Barcelona has revealed that they will be allowing Alex Song to leave the club, boosting both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in their chase for the defensive midfielder, Express reports.

The 26-year-old Cameroon international joined the Catalan side from Arsenal back in 2012, but has found it very difficult to break into the first team.

With Luis Enrique not including him in his plans for the upcoming campaign, Song has been linked with a potential move back to the English Premier League with both United and Spurs monitoring his situation.

The Red Devils have long been in search of a holding midfielder with Louis van Gaal trying all he can to secure Arturo Vidal from Juventus, but as the move looks unlikely, the Cameroonian is a very possible alternative.

Mauricio Pochettino is also targeting the player to strengthen his side, but with Southampton halting any moves for their midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, Song is possibly the next best candidate.
