Biglia reveals he could accept pay cut to make best decision for his family

By Isak Möller -

Lucas Biglia is yet to decide what his next destination will be, but it’s clear that it won’t be AC Milan. As the latter are preparing for a youth revolution, the Argentine midfielder no longer suits their project. 

Ever since joining from Lazio, Biglia has failed to live up to the expectations, also because of several injuries. The 34-year-old’s contract, worth €3.5m per year, will expire at the end of the season and Milan have no intention of renewing it.

In an interview with Radio del Plata (via Milanlive.it), the former Lazio man spoke about his future. Among other things, he revealed that he’s willing to take a pay cut to satisfy the needs of his family.

“I have a contract until June with the club and then we’ll see what to do. I honestly want to prioritize my wife and children. The economic side isn’t a priority. I think I can play a few more years,” he stated.

Then again, as his current salary is so high, the midfielder will be forced to lower it to attract the interest of some clubs this summer. Of course, he would arrive for free, but most clubs would still struggle to afford those figures.
