AC Milan playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu is reportedly edging closer towards a move to Manchester United, with talks at an advanced stage.

Manchester United are closing in on a future deal for AC Milan playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu, according to transfer expert Christian Falk.

The Turkey international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for several weeks following his strong performances for the Rossoneri, where he boasts four goals and four assists in the current campaign.

Arsenal and Atletico Madrid have also been linked with a swoop for the 26-year-old, but Falk has claimed that negotiations between Calhanoglu and United are already at an advanced stage and a move to Manchester is edging ever closer.

Speaking to the Stretford Paddock Podcast, Falk said: "It's true and I think this will happen because last summer there will already talks with his agent. I don't know if you know but Juventus would have also have liked him last summer but he said 'no'.

"He said no because he already knew what would happen this summer with United. Talks are already very, very far at the moment and he'll be a free agent, so this transfer is very, very likely.

"He can be a good player if everything around him is working, then he can help United. He's not the kind of player that if something went wrong he'd say 'now we have to fight'.

"He's a technical player, perhaps it is Pogba to show him the way. Then I feel like he could do it at United."

Calhanoglu is currently in the final year of his contract with Milan, although the Italian giants are supposedly attempting to tie him down to a new deal.
