Despite links with a return to Lazio, Lucas Biglia is staying at AC Milan, says Biglia’s agent.
The Argentine midfielder had been rumored to be on the way out of Milan, but that doesn’t look like that’s going to happen anytime soon.

Lucas Biglia’s agent, Enzo Montepaone, said that Biglia wasn’t planning on going anywhere, and he was quoted as saying:
That news isn’t true. He’s very fired up Milan, more than ever.
He’ll arrive tomorrow to prepare for an important season. He’s very fired up and he wants to stay.
He has some offers but wants to stay at Milan. That’s the decision he’s made. He’s too happy at Milan.
Biglia isn’t necessarily the first name on the team sheet for Milan, but he’s been an important part of the team, when healthy. Let’s hope he is fit and ready to go, as Milan’s depth will be tested by another season in the Europa League.
