Lucas Biglia has been ruled out for a month after suffering muscular injury.
The former Lazio captain joined the Rossoneri last month, and a day before he was supposed to make his debut in a friendly against Real Betis, the 31-year-old midfielder picked up an injury.
“After today’s tests, Biglia was diagnosed with a lesion to his left thigh femoral bicep muscle. His time of recovery will depend on the evolution of the clinical picture and is estimated to be approximately four weeks,” a statement on Milan’s website reads.
The Argentine will therefore miss the two Europa League playoff matches against KF Shkëndija on August 17th and August 24th and the Serie A matches against Crotone on August 20th and Cagliari on August 27th. It is also possible that he will miss the encounter at Stadio Olimpico against the Biancocelesti on September 10th. He will most likely be ready against Udinese on September 17th.
With Biglia out for the next month, coach Vincenzo Montella will have to rely on Montolivo and Locatelli. There are also suggestions that regardless of Biglia’s injury, Milan Badelj is still considered.
