€40m Free-kick Master Confirms He’s Open to Man Utd Move, Amid Chelsea Interest
CHELSEA target Hakan Calhanoglu admits he would find it difficult to turn down a Premier League move – to Manchester United.
The Bayer Leverkusen ace is reportedly wanted by Antonio Conte this month as a replacement for Oscar.
Chelsea sent scouts to watch the €40m-rated free-kick master in action last month and could launch a bid after seeing their 13-game winning run come to an end against Tottenham.
However, the set-piece specialist appears to have his sights set on a switch to fierce rivals United instead.
Jose Mourinho is scouring the market for more top talent and Calhanoglu’s precise passes could be just what he needs in his title bid.
The Turkey international is also open to joining Barcelona but insists he’s remaining focused on the task at hand with Leverkusen.
Calhanoglu told Lig TV: “Barcelona and Manchester United are huge clubs, it would be difficult to turn them down.
“But I have not said anything about any transfers or anything of the sort.”
Calhanoglu was also linked with Tottenham last summer but is unlikely to move to White Hart Lane following Dele Alli’s prolific rise as a No.10.
