Anderlecht maintain they do not want to sell midfielder Lucas Biglia, who has been attracting interest from Manchester United and Arsenal.

The 25-year-old Argentine continues to impress at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium and has frequently been linked with a move away from Belgium.

Last month, Biglia's agent claimed both Manchester United and Arsenal were pursuing his client as the rivals scoured the market for midfield reinforcements.

“Fiorentina, Arsenal and Manchester United? The interest of those clubs is real,” Enzo Montepaone told Het Nieuwsblad.

However, should Sir Alex Ferguson or Arsene Wenger formalise their interest in Biglia, they would have to spend at least €15 million to capture him.

According to RTBF Sport, Anderlecht hope this valuation will be enough to scare off any potential suitors this month, before addressing the situation in the summer.

Ariël Jacobs's side a currently leading the Belgian Pro League and, should they win a place in the Champions League next season, they are likely to be able to command a greater fee for Biglia at the end of the campaign.
