BUENOS AIRES, July 5 (Xinhua) -- Argentinian giants Independiente have made an offer to repatriate experienced AC Milan midfielder Lucas Biglia, according to media reports.

Biglia, who is out of contract with the Italian Serie A club, said in May that he is considering a return to Argentina, where he has also been linked with Boca Juniors.

"I've called Lucas and we've also exchanged messages," Independiente manager Lucas Pusineri was quoted as saying by Argentinian newspaper Ole on Sunday.

"He is going to take some time to decide. He is a player with a great understanding of the game and hopefully he can join us," added Pusineri, who was Biglia's teammate at Independiente in 2005 and 2006.

Football in Argentina was suspended in March because of the coronavirus pandemic and the 2019-20 season was called off in late April. Local authorities have not indicated when the new season will begin.
