CM: Calhanoglu’s waiting game backfires as he flops again – Milan will not wait much longer

By Oliver Fisher -

Hakan Calhanoglu’s hopes of potentially attracting other offers for his services with his performances at the European Championships has not gone to plan.

Calciomercato.com write how Calhanoglu remarked the following on the eve of Turkey’s first game, a defeat to Italy: “I spoke to Maldini three days ago. I told him that now I want to focus on the European Championship.” Calhanoglu was clear in stating he will not sign as long as Turkey are at the Euros.

The 27-year-old can only be described as a flop after the first two games agains Italy and Wales as he failed to impact play, with Turkey having not scored a single goal in their two defeats, ending up in the crosshairs of critics and fans.

The strategy of waiting has not paid off because there are no new admirers. Milan have not interrupted contact with him, but they have not raised the offer already proposed to his agent, while they will not wait indefinitely for a definitive answer.

    Why wait? – Take the offer back off the table.
    He’s not worth it..

  2. Joe101 says:

    having watched both of his matches, I can only advise him to take whatever Milan offers, because if he plays like that in the last match again…500k/season might be a bit too much

  3. Rossoneri fan says:

    Malini, pls just sign his replacement. He is ordinary and a liability to the team.

    Diaz output and stats are far better for Milan. Let us just get Diaz and build our future with him. Imagine what Diaz will give if he gets to start majority of the games.

    We can manage Leap and Krunic whenever Diaz is not available or needed to rest.

    I agree with you 100% @Rossonerifan

    This guy was a 3/10 at best last year. He held down a first team position when another player clocks have shone. Get rid of him. To think we sold Locatelli!!

  6. Alfonso says:

    It says Milan will not ‘wait indefinitely’, yet it appears that they’re allowing Calhanoglu all the time he needs to try to advertise himself to other potential suitors. Our transfer strategy has been halted until he decides what he wants to do. Milan should never give a player all the decision making power, especially a player as average as Calhanoglu

  7. Rodger says:

    Sign up Joe Morrell! Luton Town reserve but had Hakan in his pocket for the whole game…

  8. Maurizio says:

    Hopefully he realizes that Qatar suits him perfectly

  9. Zsolt Bertalan says:

    An in form Calhanoglu we want.The problem is I am not sure an inform Calhanoglu wants to be at Milan. Which raises the question why would Maldini and Massara wait now and handle everything professionally when it is not reciprocated..???

      Economics.
      Signing his replacement comes at a cost and the new player will have to adapt to the team. I’d prefer he stays but with a reduced contract from what was on the table.
      The way it’s looking, Arsenal will get him for free…
