Man United have proposal on table to sign Hakan Calhanoglu: report

Man United are said to be making a genuine effort in the hunt to secure the signature of Hakan Calhanoglu.

Apparently, United are now back in the picture for a potential move to acquire the Turk. So-much-so that it’s written there’s a ‘proposal on the table’ to sign the 27-year-old.

Calhanoglu, who would be available as a free agent this summer, is in talks with AC Milan about staying in the Serie A, though those talks have stalled, leaving the Old Trafford club with an opportunity to pounce.

They’ll be new contacts between Calhanoglu and Milan as they look to ‘mend the tear’, however, the attacking midfielder is now handling offers from elsewhere…

If Calhanoglu is one of four signings this summer, I’d certainly be happy with that, provided two additions are made at centre-back and defensive-midfield…
