Biglia: Arsenal and Real want me

Anderlecht midfielder Lucas Biglia has revealed that both Arsenal and Real Madrid have been tracking him, although there have been no formal offers.

Biglia, 26, has already insisted that he wants to leave the newly-crowned Belgian champions at the end of the season and will depart if a side pays the buy-out clause in his contract (which is understood to be €10 million).

The Argentine international, who plays as a defensive midfielder, is under contract for a further three years with Anderlecht, but is happy that teams are already showing an interest.

"It's true that Real Madrid and Arsenal are interested in me," he told todomercadoweb.es. "I can say that Real Madrid have contacted my agent Enzo Montepaono to ask about my situation but so far there have only been contacts and no formal offers have arrived.

"About Arsenal, I can tell you the same as before. Only Arsenal and Real Madrid have contacted us and now we are waiting. I have a contract with Anderlecht until 2015 but the club know what I want. My intention is to leave.

"We have negotiated my buy-out clause and, if a club comes and pays the clause, Anderlecht will allow me to leave. In January, there was an important offer from Fiorentina but the club rejected it because we were in the middle of the championship. I hope now things can be different."
