According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Hakan Calhanoglu is likely to leave Milan and the Rossoneri are preparing a swap deal to sign Rodrigo De Paul.
Calhanoglu could follow Donnarumma’s footsteps leaving the Rossoneri at the end of his contract on June 30.
La Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper reports the Turkey international hasn’t accepted Milan’s €4m-a-year offer, while according to Calciomercato.com, new Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has given the green light to bring him to the Allianz Stadium.
The Bianconeri have reportedly offered Calhanoglu a €5m-a-year contract, but the richest offer for the Turkish playmaker arrived from Qatar where Al-Duhail put an €8m-a-year deal on the table.
Udinese’s Rodrigo De Paul has emerged as a possible replacement for Calhanoglu, and Milan are preparing an offer to sign him. However, as it stands, Atletico Madrid are leading the race for the Argentinean.
Udinese want €40m to sell their playmaker, but Milan hope to lower his price tag by adding Jens Petter Hauge in a swap deal.
The 21-year-old’s price tag is reported to be in the region of €15m, so Milan would need to add €20-25m cash to match Udinese’s asking price.
Hauge could then join Watford, also owned by the Pozzo family, if the Rossoneri complete the deal.
