Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have wisely become wary whenever their club is linked with a big European name, having seen so many in recent seasons fall flat on their faces.
However, such is the nature of their at time plodding midfield this season, the skeptical bunch in tonight are waxing poetical about Lucas Biglia following reports in the Sun he could be set for a move.
He’s been linked with the Red Devils for what seems like an eternity, though the Argentine international has always remained in Rome.
Now, citing reports in Italy, the report claims the Manchester giants view the 30-year old as the ideal replacement for Michael Carrick.
The England international is out of contract at the end of the season and is thought to have been left in limbo as to whether he will be kept on at the club.
Having failed to agree a new deal in the Italian capital, Biglia could be set for a £25m move to the Theatre of Dreams as he enters the final two years of his own deal with the Serie A giants.
Can Biglia fill Carrick’s role should the England star depart?
