Former Arsenal midfielder Alex Song is set for a shock return to his old club, following the news that Barcelona will be banned from the next two transfer windows.

The Catalan based club found out the news after FIFA had investigated their actions regarding ten players under the age of 18, the ruling that they had breached terms of conduct.

Return of the king

Song, now 26, claimed only last that he would be open to a move back to the Gunners, the defensive minded player moving prematurely two seasons ago.

“If I leave Barcelona it will be to return to the Premier League. I will return to England one day, that's for sure."

Unfinished business

It is rumoured that Arsène Wenger has welcomed Song’s wishes, as he feels that the midfield anchor has unfinished business at the Gunners.

This is similar to former Gunner Mathieu Flamini, who returned to the club after a turbulent five years at AC Milan.

It would be the Frenchman, now 30, who Song would replace at the Gunners, the club planning to restructure the defensive aspect of the team in the summer.

Only one Song

While Arsenal are in dire need of a long-term solution their defensive midfield position, it arises the phrase of ‘never going back’.

Alex Song had a great season before he left to Barcelona, giving Arsenal a hefty sum of money to reinvest in fresh blood.

Despite this not being done efficiently, it is likely that while Song has been tried and tested, there could be a new midfielder waiting for the chance to shine.

With competition fierce in the middle of the park, perhaps Wilshere could be moulded into the ‘Makelele’ role, allowing Arsène Wenger to keep his wallet closed and England to have a new hero.

I know this wasn't the thrust of your article but Wilshere moulded into a Makelele? An absurd notion. No sane manager would contemplate this. Just like centre forwards, deep midfielders are not all the same.

Even if it is just buying that's restricted, why would they start offloading players they can't replace? Muppet.

Quoting Terrible Article:
This is incredible. You rule out the possibility that this could happen in your opening paragraph, then write an article on it:

"Barcelona will be banned from the next two transfer windows."
How on earth could this lead to speculation that Song could be transferred, when Barcelona is banned from transfers.
