Hakan Çalhanoğlu has a week to respond to Milan and decide whether he stays of walks, reports in Italy say.
Çalhanoğlu joined Milan during the summer of 2017 and has over the years established himself as a starter.
However, the contract of the player is due to expire on June 30 and there is still no agreement between Milan and Hakan, as there is a distance between the demand of the player and the offer of Milan.
After weeks of silence between the parties and reports that Milan have decided to no longer wait for Hakan, Sky Italia reports this evening that the talks have been reopened. It is claimed that there has been a fruitful meeting and there is one last attempt to extend the deal of Çalhanoğlu.
Paolo Maldini is reportedly offering the Turk €4m plus bonuses per year, which is lower than the demand of Hakan’s agent. The former Bayer Leverkusen man also holds an offer from Al-Duhail for a three-year contract worth €8m per year with an €8m signing bonus. Milan expect an answer back from Hakan shortly, at most within a week as they want to keep building next season’s squad.
Milan have already shown they have no problems saying goodbye to key players when there is a disagreement over salary: Gianluigi Donnarumma is leaving the club as a free agent for this very reason.
