The announcement was posted on the Arsenal website right after the result at The Emirates, with the club agreeing to sell the 24-year-old midfielder to the La Liga club for a reported £15 million.
The Cameroon international will travel to the Catalan club to agree personal terms and undergo a medical ahead of the proposed move. He is expected to completed his move to the Nou Camp on Monday.
Barcelona later confirmed the news, with a club statement reading:
‘Barcelona have agreed a deal with Arsenal for the transfer of Alex Song to the Nou Camp. The fee is €19m (£15m).
‘The Cameroon international midfielder will sign for the next five seasons with a release clause of €80m (£63m).
‘On Monday he’ll have a medical and then join the rest of the squad for the official team presentation at the Joan Gamper Trophy.’
Hopefully the Frenchman reinvests the cash in new players and on today’s evidence, recruiting a solid midfielder is a must!
