Biglia set for Milan move

Biglia set for Milan move

Welcome to this new initiative by Times of Malta's sports desk.

Ivan Perisic is wanted by Manchester United.

Inter are in advanced talks to sign a replacement for Perisic - Keita Balde from Lazio.

Perisic was given permission to leave Inter's training camp in the Alps on Saturday to return to Croatia to see a "trusted dentist" because of a "tooth abcess".

The Croatian midfielder spent the last season on loan at AC Milan but Antonio Conte has no long term plans for him at the Stamford Bridge and Lazio are reported to be close to signing the 22-year-old.

Biglia joined Lazio in an €8.4 million deal from RSC Anderlecht in 2013, but was in the final year of his deal with the Rome club.

The Argentina global has always been a target for Milan and the Rossoneri have paid a reported €17m to bring him to the club, with Biglia signing a three-year contract.

Biglia scored five goals with four assists in 34 appearances across all competitions last season.
