According to Milannews.it, The media focus has been on the renewal of Gianluigi Donnarumma but Hakan Calhanoglu's contract renewal is equally important with its contract expiring at the end of the season.
The attacking midfielder's agent has had several meetings with the Milan Hierarchy but all have ended in a stalemate. The Rossoneri continues to offer the Turk 4 million euros plus bonuses but Hakan through his agent initially requested 6 million euros but has now brought it down to 5.
The economic difference between the demand and what Milan management is willing to offer is not far away but there are other teams also poaching Hakan's agent and we will have to wait till the end of the season to see the outcome.
Hakan's evaluation by the management is both economic and technical as in 2021 the attacking midfielder rarely played the game with his usual quality. So far this season, the Turkish international has scored only three goals, while he distinguished himself for assists, but then there were many physical problems (including Covid) that held him back. The 4 million-plus bonuses offered by the club seem more than fair for the value of the Turk, who instead continues to demand more.
