AC Milan’s Hakan Calhanoglu is on Juventus transfer radar and a decision is expected within the month on the Juventus target
Hakan Calhanoglu is undergoing a contract-tussle with his current club AC Milan, and Juventus are monitoring the situation closely with a decision expected this month.
Hakan Calhanoglu – a Turkish international is claimed to have requested a wage of 7 million euros, equal with current highest-earner Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but the Rossoneri have baulked at the idea thus far.
This situation has alerted a number of clubs including Manchester United to his potential availability in the coming months, either on a free transfer in the summer, or for a likely cut-price deal in January and Juventus are keen.

Tuttosport understands that a Christmas has been made the cut-off for a new deal to be sorted out, which tells you that a transfer could well be on the cards come next month.
The report adds that AC Milan will continue to stand their ground with the offer of 4 million euros per season, just over half what was asked for, and clubs will be following the latest closely.
I imagine Milan would be against striking a deal for Hakan Calhanoglu with the Juventus in January, considering they currently hold onto top spot in Serie A, while Juventus have endured some sticky moments already this term, but they may have to weigh up how much of an effect on their finances they are willing to suffer if they were to lose him on a free transfer next summer instead.
