So over a week ago we heard that Sergio Busquets would welcome Alex Song to the Nou Camp.
Then on Wednesday we heard Andres Iniesta have his say on the matter, stating his admiration for Song.
Now it’s the turn of defender Gerard Pique to do a bit of brown-nosing.
The Cameroon international has attracted the attention of Barcelona, with the Spanish club believed to be preparing a move for the 24-year-old before the summer transfer window shuts due to the departure of Seydo Keita.
This has left The Gunners preparing a new-bumper deal for the tenacious midfielder, despite having two-years left to run on his existing contract.
Now if we weren’t already unhappy with the words and, in my view, some illegal tapping up by Busquets and Inesta, then I’m pretty sure Pique’s latest statement would have definitely angered and riled up some Gooners out there.
The former Manchester United centre-back says he would be ‘happy to welcome’ the defensive midfielder to the Nou Camp:
‘Song is a great player with an impressive physical ability and good technique.
‘If he comes, which, from what I’ve read looks like it could happen, we are happy to welcome you.’
Clearly the Spanish trio are trying to persuade Song to quit Arsenal for Barcelona, like they (the club’s players) did with Cesc Fabregas last summer, and I’m almost certain, than I am Caucasian, that we’ll be seeing/hearing a few more Barca players express their ‘admiration’ and praise the Cameroonian before the summer is up.
Anyone want to take a bet on this?
I didn’t think so.
