Juventus Trying to Land Calhanoglu – Will Milan Replace Him with Roma Man?

As the season is fast approaching its ending, the clubs are already laying their plans for next season. Some of the biggest Serie A sides could be involved in a transfer shuffle as Hakan Calhanoglu is once again being linked with a move towards Juventus, and Milan could be looking for a replacement within the borders.

According to Calciomercato, the Rossoneri star could opt to leave the club once his contract expires in the next few weeks.

The Turkish playmaker is so far refusing the Diavolo’s offer – which is worth 4 million euros per season – whilst the Bianconeri are willing to offer him 5 millions per year.

Whilst the Old Lady’s proposal is a tempting one for the 27-year-old, the report notes that the presence of several variables that could jeopardize this operation.

Firstly, if Milan manage to secure their spot in next season’s edition of the Champions League, then club director Paolo Maldini could convince the owners – Elliot Group – to lift their renewal proposal to meet the player’s demands.

Secondly, the current Juventus management that is pursuing Calhanoglu could no longer be the same once the current season concludes, as the winds of change could blow over the entire hierarchy following a disastrous campaign on all levels.

On another note, according to il Tempo via Calciomercato, Milan have reportedly set their sights on Henrikh Mkhitaryan as an alternative attacking midfielder for the possibly departing Turk.

The source claims that the Armenian has until the end of the month to trigger a clause that would release him from his contract with Roma.

The former Manchester United and Arsenal player is also worried about the arrival of José Mourinho to the Italian capital, as the two men had a frosty relationship in the past.

Therefore, the 32-year-old could be looking for one last big contract in his professional career, and might find it at Milan – at least if the report is to be believed.
