Manchester United target Hakan Calhanoglu would reportedly see his wages doubles if he completes a switch to Old Trafford from AC Milan.
With the Turkey international’s contract at the San Siro expiring next summer, a number of clubs are believed to be preparing for an intense battle to secure Calhanoglu’s signature in 2021.
United are supposedly keen on bringing Calhanoglu to the Premier League, with the Red Devils said to be hopeful of tying the 26-year-old down to a five-year deal in the red side of Manchester.
AC Milan are not giving up without a fight, though, as Todofichajes claim that the Serie A powerhouses have tabled a three-year contract worth €3m (£2.7m) per season for Calhanoglu to stay on, but United have been in contact with the player’s representatives and are willing to double his salary.
With the former Bayer Leverkusen man in the final year of his existing deal with Milan and reportedly rejecting the Rossoneri’s offer of a new contract, the prospect of signing Calhanoglu as a free agent would represent an ideal piece of business for United in this period of financial uncertainty.
Calhanoglu already boasts four goals and four assists in all competitions this season.
