Calhanoglu’s 3 demands for a new deal

AC Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu, though his agent, has presented the club his demands for a new contract. 

Renewals are at hot topic at Casa Milan. After that of Donnarumma and Ibrahimovic, the management must also discuss the contract extension of Hakan Calhanoglu too. The Turkish midfielder has been a key player of AC Milan post-Covid.

Since the resumption of Italian football, Calhanoglu has scored five goals and has provided four decisive assists. Hakan’s current contract expires in 2021 and the management is working to find an agreement as soon as possible. Precisely for this reason, in recent days, Maldini has met with his agent Gordon Stipic.

Tuttosport reports the demands of the Turkish midfielder in order to renew his contract. Hakan wants an increase of his salary (now earns 2.5 million) and a new deal of at least four years. The 26-year-old also wants to insert a release clause in the new contract with the Rossoneri. Until now, Milan has avoided release clauses with Bennacer being the exception.

The AC Milan number 10 that has grown exponentially with Stefano Pioli. The Italian coach has finally deployed Hakan in his natural role of attacking midfielder, something that did not happened with Marco Giampaolo.

Milan absolutely does not want to lose Calhanoglu and for this reason Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara will have a new meeting with his agent as soon as he finishes the championship. The Turkey international has never hidden his desire to stay with the Rossoneri although often he has expressed his dream of playing for a Champions League club.
