Hakan Calhanoglu’s time at AC Milan looks set to continue beyond the summer as he is primed for a key role under Ralf Rangnick, a report claims.
The Turkey international had a hand to play in all four of Milan’s goals against Lecce on Monday as he bagged two assists, plus it was his shot who was spilled for Giacomo Bonaventura to make it 2-1. You can see the highlights of his performance here.
His agent spoke on Tuesday regarding his client’s future and the fact his deal expires in 2021, and revealed that the 26-year-old has ambitions of playing in the Champions League.
According to Wednesday’s edition of Tuttosport however (via Football Italia), the Rossoneri want to agree new terms with the creative midfielder who is apparently willing to sign a new deal.
The Turin-based paper claims that Calhanoglu has received assurances from Ralf Rangnick that he will be a key figure under his guidance, with Rangnick having wanted him at RB Leipzig three years ago.
As a result, it seems both sides are confident a renewal will be agreed to avoid a Donnarumma-esque panic.
