Hakan Çalhanoğlu’s contract at AC Milan expires in the summer and there’s no clarity if he’ll continue at the San Siro next season.
His contract situation has allowed the likes of Chelsea and other clubs to swoop in. Two days ago, Sky Italia reported the Blues have taken first steps to make an attempt to sign the 27-year-old.
TuttoMercatoWeb provides the latest development on the negotiations for the playmaker’s renewal and the clubs closely watching the contract talks with the Serie A side.
It’s claimed the ‘renewal issue remains stalled’ because the two parties have failed to reach an agreement. The report adds ‘there are no signs in this direction’, suggesting an agreement for a new deal is unlikely to reached.
The Turkey international is demanding a salary (most likely net) of €4.5m, while the Rossoneri ‘continue not to deviate’ from their offer of €4m per year.
Chelsea have ‘informed’ themselves of Çalhanoğlu’s situation in ‘recent weeks’ and Juventus in the last few days. TMW makes it clear ‘no negotiations started’, but an ‘expression of interest’ is shown by these two sides.
Inter Milan are also in the background looking at the former Bayer Leverkusen man, but they have also not made an offer.
The big names like Chelsea, Juve and Inter ‘make themselves heard’, while half a million separates Çalhanoğlu from signing a new contract with Milan.
