AC Milan have reportedly made a decision regarding the future of Hakan Calhanoglu, with his contract set to expire in a year’s time.
The former Bayer Leverkusen man, who arrived in 2017, signed a four-year deal and not a five-year one like Andrea Conti and Franck Kessie. As a result of this, in a few months, Milan will also have to evaluate the future of the Turk or they risk losing him for free at the end of next season.
Despite the inconsistent nature of his performances, Calhanoglu has been a key part of the starting XI under Stefano Pioli regardless of the system he has used.
According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Milan have decided that Calhanoglu will still be at the centre of the project next season.
As a consequence of this, negotiations will also begin in the coming months for the renewal of his contract. Of course, this comes hand-in-hand with speculation that Ralf Rangnick – a manager who is a big admirer of Calhanoglu – could be joining this summer.
In three years, the former Hamburger SV playmaker has 17 goals and 24 assists in 116 appearances.
