Lucas Biglia’s move has finally be made official, as the 31-year-old regista is joining on a three-year deal.
With Marco Fassone and Massimiliano Mirabelli in China for the Rossoneri ICC matches, there is no live presentation or a triple handshake, but regardless, it’s now official: Biglia is a Milan player.
“Milan are delighted to announce the signing of Lucas Biglia from SS Lazio. The player has penned a three-year contract through to 30 June 2020,” a statement on the Rossoneri’s website reads on Sunday.
Biglia cost Milan €17 million plus €3 million of bonuses and is expected to earn €3.5 million per season wearing the red and black shirt. Lucas arrived in Milano on Friday evening and found many fans chanting his name. On Saturday, together with Leonardo Bonucci, he had his medical at La Madonnina clinic and also completed all the necessary athletic tests at training center Milanello.
Earlier today, a video of Biglia emerged online in which someone asked him what he has to tell the fans; Lucas, who probably didn’t sleep much over the past few days, answered ‘Forza Lazio!’, as he used to captain the Biancocelesti. The guy then told an embarrassed Biglia: ‘Not a good start, eh?’. Biglia and Bonucci will fly out to China and join the rest of the squad in the next few days.
The 31-year-old Argentine regista is the 10th purchase of Milan after Musacchio, Kessié, Ricardo Rodriguez, André Silva, Borini, Hakan Çalhanoğlu, Andrea Conti, A. Donnarumma and Bonucci.
