Lucas Biglia said goodbye to the fans after his match against Lierse. But is the Argentine international really leaving Anderlecht in the middle of the season? "I hope so", he reacted.
"After more than six years in Belgium it is time for something else. I need to go to a better league if I want to join Argentina on the next world cup. Time is running out for me."
"Don't get me wrong though. I really like Belgium and Anderlecht. If I have to return in January to play here once more, I won't regret it. It's a great club and a great country. But I hope to transfer will finally come."
Interested clubs will have to pay more than 8 million euros to land Biglia. The player would like to go to Spain or Italy, but not many clubs there are capable of paying these amounts because of the new financial fair-play rules and the economical crisis. It seems a Russian club is the most likely then.
"My wife has to agree with a transfer to Russia. That will changes our lives a lot. But that doesn't mean it's a no-go. I hope to return to Brussels in January to say goodbye to my team mates. Else I will gladly serve Anderlecht six more months."
