Tuttosport via MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan trequartista Hakan Calhanoglu could actually move to Atlético Madrid this summer freeing up Rodrigo de Paul to take his place from Udinese as the deals cross paths. Calhanoglu has publicly declared that he will communicate his decision to Milan’s management on the contract renewal following the Euros.

Sky Italia via MilanNews.it are reporting that Calhanoglu has received an offer worth 3 million euros per year and signing bonuses worth 3 million euros too. Milan’s current offer to the player is 4 million euros per year.

MilanNews.it are reporting that Milan are in pole position to sign De Paul as the player wants to join the Rossoneri having given a go ahead, Udinese are interested in both Jens Petter Hauge and Tommaso Pobega who could be included in the deal and Calhanoglu’s exit could free up the space and finances to go all in for De Paul.
