PHOTO: Hakan Calhanoglu On Way To Italy
Calhanoglu is obviously on his way to Milan so as to complete his switch!
Milan are very close to signing Bayer Levekusen’s midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu, according to Sky Italia. The Rossoneri have tabled in a €21 million bid including bonuses, reaching €25 million in total.
An agreement between Milan and the Bundesliga side is very likely to be found until the end of the weekend, for even Calhanoglu himself posted a photo on the social media, indicating that he will fly to Milan to finalize the transfer.
Calhanoglu’s versatility allows him to play across a number of attacking positions on the field – including as a shadow striker, on either wing and as an advanced playmaker – and in him, the Rossoneri will have a top player in the already reinforced squad.
The Turkish international missed the final four months of last season after he was banned by FIFA for breaking an already agreed upon contract extension with former club Trabzonspor ahead of his switch to Hamburg in 2011.
