AC Milan are keeping a very close eye on Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric as they seek a replacement for 33-year-old Lucas Biglia, reports Calcio Mercato.
The recent report from the Italian outlet states Biglia’s future at Milan is under threat and there is a strong possibility that the Argentine could leave the club in the January window.
Indeed, Biglia’s contract expires at the end of the season and with a renewal looking unlikely, it seems the Rossoneri are looking to cash in on the former Lazio man in January.
Another reported possible route for the midfielder is Qatar, where the transfer window does not shut until September 30, but either way, it seems Milan are preparing for life without him.
The report claims Milan’s go-to man is Real Madrid star Modric, who was also heavily linked with city rivals Inter Milan last season.
Modric, who is a Milan fan according to Calcio Mercato, would move to Milan under the right conditions, such as if the Italian side can seal Champions League football.
So far this season, Modric has played just 78 minutes for Madrid but he still managed to bag himself an assist and prove that even at 34 years old, the current Ballon d’Or holder would no doubt be capable of filling the boots of Biglia if he were to sign.
