Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern appreciate Louis van Gaal’s open mind approach in the transfer market as the Daily Mirror say he may consider a move for Lazio midfielder Lucas Biglia.
The 29-year-old, who is an Argentinian international, is on his books at Old Trafford as he looks to tactically shake up his squad ahead of next season.
Despite his fabulous ability, he is only valued at the low price of £8m, due to the fact he is pushing on to his 30th birthday.
Punters in the Transfer Tavern believe that although it is good to target young emerging talent, it would be a steal at that price if van Gaal gets a couple of good years out of them.
Biglia has made 17 Serie A appearances and has been influential but lacks in the goals department, having only scored one goal.
He is familiar with silverware too, having won four Belgian league titles and four Super Cups whilst at Anderlecht.
Several punters in the Tavern noted that United need a new defensive midfielder to fully cement themselves as a top-four team, and see Biglia as an adequate addition to the Red Devils squad.
Manchester United fans. Would you like to see them target youngsters or is it a good idea to go for a 29-year-old in his peak? Let us know your thoughts below.
