Cal­hanoglu wait­ing for ´fi­nal talks´ as AC Mi­lan move nears

Tehran Times - - WORLD SPORT -

Hakan Cal­hanoglu will move to AC Mi­lan once the Ital­ian gi­ants reach an agree­ment with Bayer Lev­erkusen, ac­cord­ing to the mid­fielder’s agent.

Turkey in­ter­na­tional Cal­hanoglu has not played since Jan­uary due to a FIFA ban re­lat­ing to con­tract dis­pute with Trab­zon­spor, whom he is said to have agreed to join be­fore pulling out in 2011, be­ing up­held by the Court of Ar­bi­tra­tion for Sport.

The 23-year-old waived his wages for the du­ra­tion of his four-month sus­pen­sion and re­port­edly opted against an ap­peal in or­der to be avail­able for a trans­fer in the off-sea­son.

It ap­pears that Mi­lan could well of­fer him that move, with Cal­hanoglu’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive Bek­tas Demir­tas sug­gest­ing the player has agreed per­sonal terms with the Serie A club.

“We held good talks with AC Mi­lan,” Demir­tas told Kicker.

“It’s now im­por­tant the clubs reach an agree­ment. Once they have reached an agree­ment, we can en­ter fi­nal talks with AC Mi­lan.”

Cal­hanoglu has two years re­main­ing on his con­tract at Lev­erkusen, who are re­port­edly hold­ing out for a fee of be­tween €20mil­lion and €30m.

Mi­lan have al­ready com­pleted the sign­ings of Franck Kessie, Ri­cardo Ro­driguez, Ma­teo Musac­chio and An­dre Silva as they at­tempt to build a squad ca­pa­ble of Cham­pi­ons League qual­i­fi­ca­tion.
