Lucas Biglia To Finally Join Milan From Lazio
Biglia will become a new Milan player, for the saga is over.
Milan and Lazio have reportedly agreed a deal for midfielder Lucas Biglia. The Argentine teamed up with the rest of the Lazio squad for the pre-season preparations on Thursday, but he is now set to leave the training camp in Rome.
According to Sky Sport‘s journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Biglia will join Milan on a deal worth €17 million including €3 million of bonuses. In addition, he will sign a 3-year contract with a salary of €3.5 million per season. It is believed that the turning point in negotiations was a telephone conversation between Milan’s Fassone and Lazio’s president Claudio Lotito.
The Argentine international, who is out of contract next summer, will leave Rome on Friday to undergo his Milan medical. He has been linked with a move away from the Stadio Olimpico for some time now, but the Rossoneri have been mulling over Lazio’s high demands.
“He is very happy to join Milan. He will arrive tomorrow”, confirmed his agent Enzo Montepaone.
Once the former Anderlecht man passes the medical tests, he is going to become Milan’s ninth official signing this summer.
