Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid both want to take Lucas Biglia to the Spanish capital, according to reports in Italy.
The Lazio captain is under contract until 2018 and is rated at around £23m by the Italian side – but that has not stopped other clubs expressing an interest in signing him.
Some reports even suggested he had ‘agreed’ a four-year deal at Old Trafford, with United planning to spend £25m to bring him in.
However, he stayed put at Lazio and has made four Serie A appearances so far this term.
Now sources in Italy have claimed that the two Madrid clubs – Atletico and Real – are ready to go head-to-head for him in the New Year.
