Manchester United have bid 30m€ for Lazio’s Biglia

We published an article on 10th August revealing then that Red Devils could make €30 million bid for the Argentine midfielder and the respected journalist has confirmed that United made a formal offer.
According to Sport Mediaset, the newly-crowned captain could well be moving on this summer.
Meanwhile, Sport Mediaset also claimed that the transfer will depend on United’s ability to qualify for the Champions League in the double header qualifier scheduled against Club Brugge late August. The will (of Biglia) to leave the club will be exacerbated if Lazio fail to make it to the group stages. They also have a double header lined up against Bayer Leverkusen on the same weekend.
The Argentine is handed the captain’s armband this season, but he insisted that it does not make it a certainty that he will stay at the club.
“The fact that I accepted the captain’s armband does not mean it will stay definitely. I do not know what will happen next, in football anything can happen, we will see not only depend on me,” Biglia said.
Le 10 Sport is reporting that Manchester United have surprisingly agreed a four-year deal with Lazio midfielder Lucas Biglia.
However, the Serie A giants are demanding €40 million(£28.3m) for the midfielder, according to Italian sources.
Biglia, 29, is one of Serie A’s best midfielders, with the Argentina international offering a great amount defensively and offensively too.
French media claims that Man United have already agreed personal terms worth a total of €20m (£14.2m) with Biglia.
AS Monaco are also interested in the box to box midfielder and Louis van Gaal’s side is trying to beat them for the Argentine’s signature.
