Anderlecht star Lucas Biglia has revealed his plans to leave his current club in the January transfer window.
The Argentine midfielder has been linked with a host of Europe’s top clubs over the last few years, but the high asking price proved to be an obstacle to any move.
After Anderlecht admitted that Biglia could be sold in January, the player spoke of his situation at a press conference ahead of the Champions League clash against Malaga.
“I’m here to play Malaga and I’ll only think about (a transfer) afterwards,” Biglia told reporters.
Asked about his €8 million transfer fee, the 26-year-old replied:
“I just hope that there will be a club that comes with €8M.
“If I go in January, it is better (than next summer). But as I have already said, my head is here for six games.”
Arsenal and Manchester United have both been linked with the highly rated midfielder, who appears finally set to leave Anderlecht for a big European club.
Lucas Biglia joined Anderlecht from Independiente back in 2006 and immediately developed into a key player at Stade Constant Vanden Stock.
In total, the player has made 186 league appearances for the club, scoring 11 goals in the process.
