Man United target Lucas Biglia has reportedly had a €50m price-tag put over his head by Lazio in a bid to warn off the Premier League giants.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Lazio have placed the price-tag on their influential midfielder in an attempt to ward off any interested parties.
President Claudio Lotito is determined not to lose the Argentinian international, and will meet with his representatives this week to discuss a renewal and make him the highest-paid player at the club, as reported by Football Italia.
However, the 29-year-old may not want to sign a new deal given the level of the clubs that have been linked with a move for him ahead of the transfer window closing.
United have been most strongly linked as reports in England claim that the midfielder could arrive this week in a deal worth around €25m.
It is certainly a lot of money on a defensive midfielder that the Red Devils arguably don’t need, and the move and the amount of money spent could be met with significant criticism from United fans.
PSG, Monaco and Real Madrid have all been credited with having an interest in Biglia, but it remains to be seen if Louis Van Gaal pushes ahead with a move.
