Manchester United are very keen on landing Hakan Calhanoglu on a free transfer and are willing to double his salary to land him.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) reported earlier in the week how there is a considerable distance between Milan and Calhanoglu over his renewal at present.
The Rossoneri have put forward an offer of €3million net per season plus bonuses, while the Turkey international wants about double that.
Although the player’s desire is to stay at Milan for a few more years and hopefully participate in the Champions League, Manchester United have prepared a five-year deal for the No.10 which would see him land a pay rise.
According to reports from Spain, United are indeed willing to double the midfielder’s salary, and their management are ‘seduced’ by the idea of being able to land a player of such quality on a free transfer.
The player’s agent Gordon Stipic has already been contacted by the Red Devils, the report claims, but after a season so far with four goals and three assists in eight official matches, at the moment Calhanoglu is not in the mood for compromise.
