AC Milan star Hakan Calhanoglu is 'very, very likely' to join Manchester United next summer. That is according to Bild's Christian Falk, who claims the Red Devils are already in advanced talks with his agent over a potential deal.

Just read the above. Also being reported in SempreMilan. Any observations by Eds?

Haven’t heard anything about him but at 26 he surely doesn’t fit the profile of player OGS would be interested in.

[Ed002]: Hakan Calhanoglu (AM/ LW) Player wants a new contract - Milan could oblige - it may depend on what happens with loanee Bahim Diaz. Atletico and Juventus have asked his German-based agent if a move is possible for them. The agent remains keen on the idea to try the player out in England or Germany.}

Thanks Ed002. Appreciated. What will be will be but he doesn’t appear to play positions we’re deficient in. Agent creating a market?

{Ed002's Note - The agent has been talking with Atletico and Juventus who both have a need an he is a cheap solution. He will likely agree a new deal with Milan which is what he wants - and he gets a good deal with taxes in Italy. As I have said the driver will be talks with Real Madrid over several matters and that includes BD. The agent is doing nothing wrong.}

Thanks again Ed002. Your insight is always enlightening and welcome. I didn’t intend to give the impression I thought the agent was doing anything wrong. That’s his job after all.

@scoobydog because he’s so old at 26?!
Are you Meryn Trant?

Prodigal please explain yourself re Meryn Trant.
OGS seems to be shaping a younger profile team hence the post was supposed to be more of a question than a statement.
