It’s now a done deal: Lucas Biglia will join Milan after a deal has been reached between the clubs on Thursday.
After weeks of negotiations and discussions, a definitive agreement has finally been reached between Milan and Lazio over the Biancocelesti captain Biglia.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia, the white smoke has arrived and the deal is done. La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Milan have met Lazio’s evaluation of €20m, agreeing to pay €17 million plus €3m bonuses for Biglia. Di Marzio reports that it’s €17m plus bonuses for Lucas, whose agent Enzo Montepaone confirmed: “It’s done. Biglia’s so happy with this move. He’ll arrive in Milan tomorrow and he can’t wait to get started.”
Biglia will sign a three-year deal with Milan worth €3.5m plus bonuses per season. Today he started pre-season training with Lazio, but it was his first and last day, as he’s ready to leave the camp and head to Milano in order to complete his move to red and black. As reported by LaLazioSiamoNoi earlier today, the Lazio fans called him an ‘unworthy captain’ and told him to ‘go to Milan’.
Biglia is the second reinforcement for the midfield after Franck Kessié arrived from Atalanta for €28m. With talks for the Argentine concluded, Milan can now focus on Leonardo Bonucci and a top striker.
