Hakan Calhanoglu’s future is yet to be decided as his contract will expire in the summer. Milan, of course, don’t want to lose their No.10 for free but the renewal negotiations have turned out to be very tough.
According to Niccolo Ceccarini, in his latest piece for TMW, the Rossoneri and Calhanoglu are increasingly distant. The distance between offer and demand is significant and this has caused the negotiations to hit a roadbloack.
The midfielder currently earns around €2.5m per year and would like to double his salary. Milan, on the other hand, are only willing to go as far as €3.5m. It remains to be seen what the Rossoneri’s strategy will be to solve the situation.
Should things remain like this, as Ceccarini continues, then a sale could take place in January. If so, Dominik Szoboszlai would be the first choice to replace Calhanoglu but the price tag is high, making that hypothesis tough.
