Photos posted online by Alex Song on Instragram and Snapchat show the midfielder arriving back in Barcelona by private plane on crutches.
Reports suggest Alex Song’s may face surgery and up to three months on the sidelines. The player’s proposed move from Barcelona to the Boleyn ground could be in jeopardy depending on the severity of the injury.
Having experienced a torrid time with striker, Andy Carroll, the club is unlikely to gamble again in signing another crocked star – unless the injury proves to be minor. Song, 27, is understood to have already agreed personal terms with West Ham, but has been waiting for Barca and Hammers officials to iron out the finer details of his deal. Song has another year on his contract with Barcelona.
Reports claim Song has discovered he has a piece of floating bone, which may require surgery and rule him out of the start of the Premier League season.
