Report: Milan outcast could leave for free in February; interest from Boca Juniors and MLS

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan midfielder Lucas Biglia could still leave the club in February, according to a report, with a move to North or South America a possibility.

The Argentine has been out of action for the last few weeks as he continues to recover from a muscle problem, something which essentially ruined any chances of a January exit.

However, according to calciomercato.it, all is not lost for Biglia. The outlet claims that he is among the players who do not fit into head coach Stefano Pioli’s plans and – given the fact his contract expires in June – he could immediately leave.

The 34-year-old is approaching his return after suffering a hamstring injury, and it is plausible that a return to his home country could become a possibility. The market in Argentine does not close until February 19, and Boca Juniors are looking for an experienced holding midfielder after the departure of Daniele De Rossi.

The other option leads to the MLS, with several clubs interested in the former Lazio man, the report concludes.

MilanNews.it recently reported that Biglia will have been a €40m investment for Milan by the time his contract expires in June, when factoring in the fee paid and his high wages.
