According to reports, Barcelona have joined the race to sign Manchester United transfer target Hakan Calhanoglu.

Italian media outlet Tuttosport (via MilanLive) reported on Sunday that Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan and Juventus are all interested in signing the AC Milan playmaker with both Italian clubs prepared to bid for the Turkey international.

According to DonBalon, Barcelona are now also in the running for the 26-year-old. It is believed that the Catalan giants boss Ronald Koeman is a huge admirer of the player and feels he would be perfect fit for the Spanish side.

A potential blow for United is that the player has always desired to play for Barca as he sees them as his dream club.

The player is currently in the final year of his contract at Milan and could be signed for free, but the Rosoneri are trying to lure the Turk to sign a new contract.
