Independiente manager confirms talks with Milan midfielder: “I sent him a message”

By Oliver Fisher -

Independiente coach Lucas Pusineri has confirmed that the club are in talks with AC Milan midfielder Lucas Biglia over a free transfer.

The 34-year-old’s current deal is set to expire at the end of the season, but then – like his team-mate Giacomo Bonaventura – he will have to find a new club.

Biglia joined from Lazio back in summer 2017 but his time at Milan has been far from plain sailing, with a combination of injuries and poor form having quickly dampened the initial excitement surrounding his arrival.

There has been an abundance of speculation in the media surrounding where Biglia may end up next, but the most concrete hypothesis suggested has been that of a return to his home country, with his agent Enzo Montepaone recently confirming as much.

Now, Independiente boss Lucas Pusineri has confirmed that talks are underway to bring him to Buenos Aires.

“I sent him a message and I have already started my speech with him,” he told TMV (via MilanNews).

“We will certainly talk to each other in these days. We will see what his idea is and we will try to carry out this agreement.”
