The player will come back to the team he already played last season
Alex Song will not stay in Barcelona, as expected. Instead, he will play for the second season in West Ham on loan. Thus, the club found a solution to the penultimate year of the contract of the midfielder. As reported by the English club, Song will wear number 4.
Song came in Barcelona in the summer of 2012, attending the request of Tito Vilanova to incorporate a midfielder that could also be center-back and he signed for five years, until 2017. So, we still don't know what he will do in the 2016-17 season.
Despite the transfer to West Ham, the Catalan club will have to pay part of the salary of the player. Besides, like last season, Song will earn bonus for titles won by Barcelona, something usual in players on loan.
