Luis Enrique is not counting on him and the club is looking for an exit
After two seasons in a row on loan at West Ham United, Alex Song came back to Barça with one year still left on his contract and without Luis Enrique counting on him. This is why the player is looking for a new destination, since West Ham made it clear they didn't want him either.
In such circumstances, there is one option in the Spanish La Liga that stands out: Valencia. The 'Ches' are looking for a midfielder and the high cost of their first option (Amadou Diawara, of Bologna) causes them to take interest in the Blaugrana player, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Nonetheless, there is some distance in terms of money between the two teams: While Barça wants a transfer fee around 10 million euros, Valencia don't want to play more than 5.
