Following his £15m move from Arsenal, midfielder Alex Song says that new employers Barcelona are "the best team in the world".

New Barcelona signing Alex Song has expressed his delight at joining "the best team in the world".

The 24-year-old Cameroon international completed his £15m switch from Arsenal yesterday.

He said: "I'm so happy to be here because everyone knows Barcelona are the best team in the world. I'm feeling like a young boy.

"To be part of this team is something I wanted to achieve when I was young.

"I always tried to think 'I will play for Barcelona' and now I have the opportunity to be here and play with the best players in the world - Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Fabregas."

Song will be available for selection when Barca take on Real Madrid at the Nou Camp in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup on Thursday evening.
