According to reports in Italy, Manchester United are considering a move for AC Milan star Hakan Calhanoglu.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the 26 year old AC Milan midfielder is seen as a cover for Bruno Fernandes, who has proven to be a sensation since his move to United in January.

Fernandes has missed just one game in all competitions since joining the club and United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on signing a back-up to the Portuguese star.

Calhanoglu’s contract at AC Milan is due to expire next year and talks are said to have stalled over a new deal, meaning AC Milan will have to sell this summer to avoid losing him for free.

United have reportedly made an enquiry for the midfielder but face competition for his signature with RB Leipzig and Hertha Berlin also interested in the Turkish midfielder.
