CM: Tension between Milan and Calhanoglu – the Rossoneri’s final offer and Juve’s interest

By Oliver Fisher -

As the days, weeks and months tick by Milan seem to be no closer to resolving the situation regarding Hakan Calhanoglu’s contract.

According to Calciomercato.com, there is a total stalemate in the negotiations between Milan and Calhanoglu for the renewal of his current deal, which expires at the end of the season. The many meetings in recent months between the parties over the previous few months have not yet led to an agreement and ‘the tension between them is palpable’ because the possibility of the Turkey international leaving on a free transfer is growing.

The latest offer presented by Massara and Maldini is €4m net per season plus bonuses based on individual and team objectives, a proposal that the Diavolo consider to be final based on careful evaluations on the value and importance of the player ‘within the principles of economic sustainability’ that CEO Ivan Gazidis is trying to establish.

Calhanoglu wants at least €5m net fixed, so the distance is there and it seems difficult to fill. Hakan feels at the height of his footballing maturity and is aiming for the best contract of his career, so he would be willing to go down only minimally from his request.

Juventus have a concrete interest in signing the former Leverkusen man as Paratici has been an admirer of his for years. Milan remain convinced that other clubs could at most equal their offer, so then it would be up to the player to choose his own destiny. The Rossoneri are looking around to evaluate the opportunities for if he leaves.

    Let him go. Not worth it. Why ask salary raise? He is not the saviour of milan.. he is underperforming ever since he came from Bundesliga. Donnaruma is not worth 12 milions per year either. Let him go also. I wouldn’t pay ibrahimovic so much either.. i would risk and bring a masive young striker but more mobile with far less wage.
    If you get rid of these players, you can gain 50 milions from wage costs. Also, sell theo when he still has a good market value. His contribution to the offensive comea with great riscs because he often lose the ball with his stupid sprints.

      You make a lot of sense bro. I feel Theo has taken his place for granted. We should get Mattias Vina or Mykolenko who would fiercely compete for places with him. Calhanoglu & Donnarumma can both go actually. But it will sad to lose them without making any money.
