CM: Milan leaders upset with Calhanoglu over gesture; January exit possible

By Oliver Fisher -

Hakan Calhanoglu is no longer considered unsellable by AC Milan and can leave for the right price, according to a report.

The Turkey international was strongly linked with an exit over the summer having so far not performed to expectations since his arrival from Bayer Leverkusen.

He reportedly rejected an offer from Fenerbahce, while il Corriere dello Sport stated that talks between Milan and Torino were ‘intensifying’ over a potential deal. though stated that the Turkey international will reject any offers that arrive in January, though the same outlet also added that Torino remain interested.

They have now provided an update, claiming that new head coach Stefano Pioli is likely to focus on Lucas Paqueta for the position in left central midfield.

In addition, the report claims that the club’s hierarchy did not like the political exultation of the player after the victory of his national team against Albania, for which he could receive a UEFA ban.

Therefore, Calhanoglu is no longer unsellable and every offer will be considered. If an offer that represents capital gains comes along (he arrived for €22m) then he would likely be sold.
