Hakan Calhanoglu is heading towards free agency, with Manchester United said to be among his many suitors, and he has given an update on is current situation.
AC Milan remain in the hunt for Champions League qualification, which could go a long way towards determining whether key men agree to stay put, and Calhanoglu is a player that has been linked with a move to the Premier Legaue.
United have one of the very best squads in the Premier League and have quality all over the pitch, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a man that knows he needs to add to his squad this summer in order to win that Premier League title off Manchester City.
But amid all the speculation, Calhanoglu insists European competition will have no impact on his decision, and says no definitive call on his next move will be made until the 2020-21 campaign comes to a close.
Asked about his plans by Sky Sport Italia, with Milan hanging onto fourth place in Serie A, Calhanoglu has said: “I am very happy that we reached this point. We’re fired up and want to book our spot in the Champions League.
“I always said that I wanted to get into the Champions League with Milan.
“However, my future does not depend on the Champions League. I am very happy to be here playing for Milan.
“At the end of the season, I will sit down with Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara to discuss my future. They are the ones in charge and I respect them.”
It will be interesting to see just where the player ends up if he does actually decide to leave the Italian giants guys.
