Hakan Calhanoglu has had an excellent international break with Turkey, but now the issue of his future must be resolved once again.
As Calciomercato.com writes, we saw some very encouraging signs from Calhanoglu in the game against Fiorentina in the last round of Serie A, scoring a goal from open play after a seven-month long drought. On international duty the playmaker has kept up his good form having scored against the Netherlands and Latvia, also registering an assist per game on the scoresheet, and an assist against Norway.
Calhanoglu therefore has two goals and three assists in the space of a week, which is excellent news for Milan in view of the run-in and the battle for a top four spot. The talks are proceeding to renew his contract, which expires at the end of the season.
The white smoke has not yet arrived, but the situation appears less complicated than that of Donnarumma. Hakan himself reiterated his desire to continue his adventure with the Rossoneri in a direct meeting with Maldini and Massara, so agent Gordon Stipic will soon have new contacts to unblock the situation.
Milan have offered an extension until 2025 worth €4m net per season, and the common will to find the definitive agreement, because Calhanoglu is an essential part of Pioli’s plans.
