Manchester United are maintaining a watching brief on AC Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu. BILD says United have a long-standing interest in signing Calhanoglu.
The 26-year-old Turkish international was first linked to United five years ago when he was at Bayern Leverkusen, but he ultimately stayed in Germany before switching to Italy in 2017.
However, it appears that he could soon be on the move away from his current club AC Milan, as he enters the last year of his contract at the San Siro, paving the way for him to sign a pre-contract agreement with clubs abroad if he does not renew his deal.
It is claimed that contact has already been made with the 26-year-old’s representatives. The former Bayern Leverkusen player plays as an attacking midfielder and is known for his set-piece expertise, something that the club could use to their advantage.
Given he is available for nothing he would also be an affordable replacement should the club finally get rid of Paul Pogba, who will also soon be entering his own transfer limbo last year of his contract with the Red Devils.
United are said to be serious in negotiations regarding a potential free transfer next summer. Calhanoglu is not expected to sign an extension at Milan, who will want to try and sell him in the January transfer window with his contract running down.
The Turkey international has been a regular in the league this season with Milan fighting at the top of Serie A after five games.
Gazzetta dello Sport believes that United could offer up a five-year contract to the German-born player, who can also operate on the left wing. It is believed many clubs across Europe will be in demand given his relative affordability and versatility.
