Lucas Biglia: Will hold talks about Lazio stay amid United interest

Reported Manchester United target Lucas Biglia may snub a move to England in favour of a stay at Lazio, according to the Italian media.

The Argentine midfielder is expected to have contract talks with the Rome club, where he is captain, before leaving for the Copa America which starts on June 3.

Biglia has had a somewhat disappointing season in a Lazio side that has struggled to match its performance in 2014/15, where they finished third, instead finishing in eighth spot.

There is a mutual desire to find an agreement according Italian outlet LaLazioSiamoNoi, and the playmaker will be offered a one-year extension until 2019.

This would include a salary raise from his current €1.5m per year to €2.4m including bonuses, a sign of intent perhaps from the Eagles.

The 30-year-old, who has scored four goals in 27 appearances for Lazio this campaign, will have to make a decision on his future soon as he reaches an age where opportunities to move abroad could become more limited.

Biglia’s agent stirred interest in his client just before the winter transfer window, stating he could join Serie A rivals Inter.

“Biglia is a top player. It is normal that the biggest teams in Europe have made enquiries about him,” Enzo Montepaone told TuttoMercatoWeb.

“There’s a big market for him, both in Italy and abroad. There are so many possibilities, Inter is one of them.

“We can’t say yet [if he will move in January]. Biglia is happy at Lazio, but we must think about what’s best for his career.”

    Forget him – he’s nowhere near UTD standard.

    Definitely not good enough for Utd, let him stay put. If he was any good he’d have been playing with a top Italian team or in Spain, Germany or England years ago

    @alex. I think he is one of the Eds mate. I agree with you questioning his presence. He is clogging the forum with rubbish posts linked to bogus stories.

    Next he’ll be posting a story about United signing Gaitan.
