CM: Calhanoglu open about desire for Galatasaray move but Milan have clear plans

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have no intentions of letting Hakan Calhanoglu leave despite the midfielder’s admission he wants to play for Galatasaray one day.

Speaking to BeIN Sports, the Turkey international declared: “Galatasaray? It is a passion that comes from my father, from my family, to be a Galatasaray fan. Hagi? In a club like Galatasaray, live the pride of number 10 with that glorious jersey is special. I hope one day I will be like him. I hope it will happen, why not?”

According to Calciomercato.com, Galatasaray tried to sign him in January but they got nowhere with their €6million offer, and now the Rossoneri are working to renew his contract which expires in 2021.

The former Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen playmaker has admirers in Germany with Ralf Rangnick – the prospective next Milan boss – having especially wanted him at RB Leipzig.

For this reason, it seems that Milan will not sell this summer, as Rangnick will want the chance to work with a player he so strongly desired previously.
