Alex Song has fuelled speculation linking him with a transfer to Manchester United by admitting that he would be keen on a move back to the Premier League.

The Cameroon international’s future at Barcelona has been uncertain for some time, with the 26-year-old having been restricted to just nine La Liga starts this season.

If I leave Barcelona it will be to return to the Premier League

The Red Devils were linked with a swoop for the midfielder last summer and the former Arsenal man has done little to quieten talk of a possible move to Old Trafford.

“If I leave Barcelona it will be to return to the Premier League. I will return to England one day, that’s for sure,” Song told BeIN Sport.

Song, who has also been linked with a return to Arsenal, was full of praise for Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.

“He [Wenger] was like a father to me. He spoke a lot with me when I arrived to Arsenal,” said Song.

“I wanted to renew my contract with Arsenal but in that case I would have regretted not joining Barcelona. Barcelona are the best side in the world.”
