Atletico Madrid have entered the race to sign former Arsenal midfielder Alex Song, who has become an outcast at Barcelona. The Spanish side will consider themselves favourites to land the player with his Premier League suitors yet to show any genuine commitment to bringing him back to England – the country he has stated he would prefer to play in. The Cameroon international has not managed to hold down a place in Barca’s team since joining the club in 2011 for 15m. Inter are also willing to offer Song a way out of Barcelona and are prepared to offer 8m for his services. A potential obstacle could be his wage demands with Song earning 4.1m annually at the Catalan club while Inter would only be willing to pay 2.4m.
