Schira: Milan ready to make one more offer to Calhanoglu with €35-40m replacement eyed

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are willing to make one final contract offer to Hakan Calhanoglu in a bid to get him to stay, a journalist has claimed.

Calciomercato.com among other sources have recently reported that Calhanoglu has not yet accepted the offer from Milan of €4m net per season and instead he has received expressions of interest from many clubs. Al-Duhail – a team from Qatar where the former Roma and Juve defender Mehdi Benatia plays – have now come forward, offering a contract worth €8m net per season.

According to the latest from journalist Nicolo Schira on Twitter, Milan will make a last offer to Calhanoglu to get him extend his contract, but he confirms the 27-year-old has received a big money offer from Qatar. Al Duhail have offered a contact until 2024 at €8m net per season with an €8m signing on fee. The Turkey international would like to stay in Europe, however.

In a follow-up tweet, he confirms that Milan are interested in Rodrigo De Paul as a possible replacement, but the asking price from Udinese starts at €35-40m.

    Just take De Ketelaere while we can afford him. 25M needed. Next year he will be way to expansive.

    Don’t be stupid. Don’t make any new offers. Moreover – withdraw the old one.

    No more offers ffs! There is a chance he might accept this one and we end up stuck with him for years.

    I think it’s time to Milan to change their No. 10 player with a better one. Having Hakan is not enought to play at UCL. Just let him GO. Having De Paul would be better for Milan.

    When I watched him today how he reacted in Diaz’z GoPro video after the final whistle in Atalanta game, his joy was like honest but on a few levels lower than the rest of the guys, as if he had a sadness in his eyes.
    Was that a sign he was leaving?! Very possible.
    De Paul is like born for this Milan team & I hope we can buy him, but of course, Vlahović MUST be number 1 priority. But having all of them in the team would be an ideal scenario.
