Sky: Rossoneri blindsided by Inter’s pursuit as Calhanoglu ‘did not notify Milan’ of offer

By Akhil Prasad -

Hakan Calhanoglu’s recently dropped the bomb of his upcoming transfer to eternal rivals Inter, as the Nerrazzuri seek for Christian Eriksen’s replacement.

It is unclear whether the Danish midfielder will resume his playing career anytime soon after suffering a cardiac arrest in Denmark’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland. The Turkish attacking midfielder is set to undergo his medical across town after deciding to renew his Rossoneri contract. He is bound to return to Milan after Turkey’s unimpressive EURO 2020 campaign.

Speaking to Sky Sports (via MilanNews), renowned journalist Luca Marchetti revealed important details of the Calhanoglu’s impending transfer.

He said: “Inter took advantage of Calhanoglu, given Eriksen’s condition: there was a blitz and found an agreement with the player in a few days.

He also explained that the attacker failed to notify AC Milan’s board and management regarding interest from another team, let alone Milan’s closest rivals.

“From what we know, Calhanoglu did not notify Milan that there was another team; the Turk accepted the Nerazzurri’s offer for next year,” he said.

Calhanoglu’s contract expires with Milan at the end of June. He amassed 172 appearances for Milan, scoring 32 goals in the process.

  1. Good riddance to a player that is majorly a liability.

    Did anyone notice that he lost his spot to Diaz when results are necessary at the tail of the season?

    Hakan the joker of a playmaker had to be shifted to the left to enable Diaz paly so that Milan will win.

    If Milan had a buy out option on the Diaz deal Hakan would have been dropped from that position from the 5th game of the season.
