It seems that Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger would do better to secure the services of Rennes’ midfielder Yann M’Vila as soon as possible, because his other Arsenal transfer target Lucas Biglia has stated his interest in joining the Spanish league, thus snubbing interest coming from the Gunners and Liverpool.
The 26-year-old Argentine has been under Wenger’s attention for quite some time, but the defensive midfielder doesn’t seem too keen to make the move to Arsenal as Real Madrid is also interested in his services. I am sure if EITHER of these two arrived Arsenal fans would feel like they had won a jackpot from online scratch cards, but it now looks like Biglia is now out of the equation.
“My cycle at Anderlecht is over,” he told Marca. “My dream is to play in Spain. It is the best in the world, by country and by language.”
“I want to be like Xabi Alonso,” he added. “For me it is him that gives balance to Real Madrid and the national team.
“He is the role model. I know it’s time to improve and polish my football ability. Also, to be involved with the national team I have to play in a major league.”
According to rumours, Biglia’s contract with Anderlecht which runs until 2015 will be cut short by Real Madrid’s manager Jose Mourinho who will place a bid for his services in the summer after stating his interest in the midfielder’s skills.
