Hakan Calhanoglu has reportedly rejected offers from England as he wishes to renew with AC Milan, but talks are proceeding slowly.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive), negotiations for the renewal of Calhanoglu are in a stand-by phase. The latest news is that Milan have offered around €4m net per year to the Turkish playmaker, but his agent Gordon Stipic has asked for over €5m with bonuses.
Although an agreement is not close it is not absolutely certain just yet, but the 27-year-old for his part has declined offers from the Premier League and has always reiterated his desire to remain at Milan.
In theory he could sign a pre-contract elsewhere, but he continues to express his intent to renew with the Rossoneri and this has not changed despite the length of the negotiations.
This is an important aspect that gives confidence to Maldini and Massara but steps in the right direction must occur soon. Considering that Calhanoglu currently receives a salary of around €2.5m net per season, Milan’s offer of €4m means a nice pay rise. Stipic, however, wants the best deal for his client in the best moment of his career.
