MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan are in a difficult position over the renewal of star midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu. The Turkey international has been one of the best in Europe as trequartista and is demanding a wage that reflects that. Milan have offered the no. 10 a contract extension worth 3.5 million euros per year whilst he is asking for about double of that figure.
Milan have a tough decision to make on whether they will renew at a high figure or seek the player and look to reinvest the money. A high wage in the renewal could encourage other leading players to request exorbitant amounts in the future. Milan need to play this delicate situation out well as Calhanoglu is key to the squad functioning this year and multiple trophies are on the line.
