Hakan Calhanoglu has laid out his requests for if he is to sign a new deal and stay at AC Milan, according to a report.
Monday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) notes how Calhanoglu has been one of the decisive players in Milan’s excellent post-lockdown run, having netted five goals and provided four decisive assists since Serie A resumed.
His contract expires on 30 June 2021 and the Rossoneri are working to find an agreement as soon as possible, with the club leaders having already met his agent Gordon Stipic.
The 26-year-old has apparently asked for a pay rise and an extension of at least four years in order to commit his future to the club, while there must also be a discussion about whether or not to include a release clause.
The Turkey international is finally shining consistently under Stefano Pioli, who has deployed him in his natural role as a playmaker. Milan do not want to lose him, and directors Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara could meet with Stipic again as soon as the season ends to secure a definitive agreement that satisfies all the parties involved.
The former Leverkusen man has never hidden the desire to stay with the Rossoneri, despite the fact that in recent days some have questioned this.
