GdS: Calhanoglu and Milan move closer to renewal after Wednesday meeting – the details

By Oliver Fisher -

Some good news is filtering from both camps regarding the potential renewal of Hakan Calhanoglu, according to a report.

On Wednesday afternoon a meeting took place between the Milan management and the player’s agent Gordon Stipic as the parties tried to resolve the future of the playmaker, whose current contract is expiring in June 2021.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive), the summit lasted about three hours and was constructive. There is no white smoke yet, but the parties seem to have gotten a little closer.

The paper adds that something has been unlocked and the two sides are not too far apart that they cannot hypothesise an agreement. A new meeting will be needed which will start from the request of €5m net per season plus bonuses and from Milan ‘s offer of €3.5m a year for four years.

Paolo Maldini revealed before the match against Genoa that there is collaboration to reach an agreement, while positive words came from Stipic as well, but a meeting point must be found economically to put to bed this long-running saga.
