Manchester United are reportedly in deep discussions with Hakan Calhanoglu over signing the AC Milan star on a free transfer next summer.

The attacking midfielder has been integral to the Italian side since joining from Bayer Leverkusen in 2017 for £21million but is out of contract at the end of the season.

Calhanoglu though is increasingly looking likely to leave though with the Italian side's offer of £2.8million (£54,000-a- week) deemed not good enough, helping draw attention from clubs like United and Juve.

United are thought to be keen on offering him an improved deal over five years.
