It may not have the wow-factor of the signing of Leonardo Bonucci or the glamour of a potential deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Alvaro Morata but Argentina midfielder Lucas Biglia is another important part of AC Milan’s summer revolution.
The Rossoneri’s new Chinese owners have immediately looked to put a season of disappointment behind them and overseen an extravagant spending spree that could reach the €200 million mark by the time a big-name striker arrives at the San Siro.
Biglia became Milan’s ninth addition of the window over the weekend after completed deals for compatriot Mateo Musacchio, Atalanta pair Franck Kessie and Andrea Conti, Portuguese striker Andre Silva, Swiss full-back Ricardo Rodriguez, Turkish midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu, Italian Fabio Borini, and of course the €40 million capture of Juventus centre back Leonardo Bonucci.
After finishing in sixth, a whopping 28 points shy of champions Juventus, Milan are looking to recapture the glory that is associated with a club of its stature and while a number of the young, talented signings will excite supporters, Biglia brings a wealth of Serie A experience, undoubted leadership quality and an underrated midfield presence.
