Manchester United will have to pay £35 million if they want to sign Lazio midfielder Lucas Biglia, according to reports in La Gazetta dello Sport.

It had been reported yesterday that a £17.5 million deal had been agreed between the two clubs, but the Italian side are holding out for a larger fee.

The Italian side have included the 29-year-old in their 25 man squad for the UEFA Champions League play-off tie with Bayer Leverkusen.

However, this will not effect should the Argentinian move to Old Trafford and United make it past Club Brugge. 


In other news, Real Madrid are coming to terms with the fact United will not budge in their €40 million valuation of David de Gea.

Ed Woodward is adamant the Spanish stopper will remain at Old Trafford if their demands are not met.

According to reports in Spain, Madrid president Florentino Perez is preparing to cough up the cash in order to land his number one target.

The pressure is mounting on the Real Madrid president following a turbulent summer and De Gea is seen as an ideal replacement for Iker Casillas.


And finally, United wanted to complete a deal for Pedro, before they allow Javier Hernandez, who has been linked with a £12million move to West Ham, to leave, according to the Daily Mail.

Hernandez spent last season on loan at Real Madrid and appeared to be surplus to requirements at Old Trafford.

However, he found himself on the bench for the opening game against Tottenham. He is still in line for a move away from Old Trafford.

But the deal may be on hold until United can wrap up the signing of Pedro, something that has been delayed by Neymar's bout of mumps.
