AC Milan have not yet made any progress regarding the extension of Hakan Calhanoglu and have two alternatives in mind, a report claims.
With less than 100 days until the expiry of Calhanoglu’s contract, there is nothing to suggest that an agreement is imminent or even that there is any forward movement between the two parties towards a common meeting point, which has intensified the speculation that he could leave on a free transfer.
According to what is being reported by SportMediaset (via MilanNews), news is expected soon regarding the renewal of Calhanoglu, who is currently on leave in Germany for the birth of his son.
The former Leverkusen man has not yet accepted the €4.5m net per season offer table by the Milan management, and that is why replacements are being eyed. Josip Ilicic of Atalanta and Nikola Vlasic of CSKA Moscow are options, but the broadcaster does add that the renewal of Ibrahimovic could prove to be a forerunner to an acceleration in talks with Calhanoglu.
