Calhanoglu quashes rumours of unhappiness: “I want to wear the AC Milan shirt again”

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu has declared his desire to stay with the Rossoneri and to sign a new contract.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reported on Friday (via MilanNews) that Calhanoglu does not want to renew his deal, as he wants to go home to Germany where he was born and raised.

RB Leipzig and Hertha Berlin were mentioned as two teams ready to welcome him with open arms, as per the report, but now the midfielder has responded.

However, the player then responded on Instagram by labelling it as ‘fake news’, and now he has spoken to Sky Italia about his future amid reports in the media suggesting he is closing in on signing a renewal on his current deal, which expires in 2021.

“It is not true that I want to return to the Bundesliga. I want to be here. I chose Milan with my heart. I want to wear the AC Milan shirt again,” he said (via MilanLive).

Calhanoglu has been one of the decisive players in Milan’s excellent post-lockdown run, having netted five goals and provided four decisive assists since Serie A resumed.
