Manchester United are reportedly preparing a €40m move for Bundesliga superstar Hakan Calhanoglu.
Reports are currently breaking in Germany that the Red Devils are ready to offer a huge sum of money for Bayern Leverkusen talent, Hakan Calhanoglu.
Calhanoglu is a Turkish born attacking midfielder who is just 21 years of age. The creative talent formally represented Hamburg but completed a €14.5m move to Leverkusen in the summer of 2014.
In his first season with the club, Calhanoglu remarkably scored 13 goals while assisting 10 others in 47 appearances. So far this season, he has already managed 5 goals and 4 assists.
The initial reaction online is that this would be an excellent signing for Manchester United but that, in today’s market, the player is worth far more than the €40m bid that the Old Trafford giants are willing to offer.
Famed for his ridiculous free kick record, you can take a look at some of his excellent efforts below.
