Hakan Calhanoglu is yet to renew his contract with AC Milan but has reportedly taken a major decision over his future.

It remains to be seen where Calhanoglu will play his football next season, but it appears it won’t be in the Premier League for sure.

The Milan playmaker is out of contract at the end of the season and is yet to sign an extension.

AC Milan chiefs are still sweating over Calhanoglu, with no breakthrough said to be forthcoming over talks for a renewal.

The Turkish playmaker is in the final six months of his contract and is currently free to negotiate with foreign teams.

However, he has apparently turned down the chance to move to the Premier League already.

Premier League duo United and Chelsea are reportedly interested in Calhanoglu.

Previous reports had even claimed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co. were in advanced talks with the 27-year-old.

But according to Gazzetta dello Sport, via Milan Report, Calhanoglu has decided against moving to the Premier League.

Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is determined to keep him at the club, having played him 18 times in the Serie A season already.

The Turkish midfielder has been one of the club’s consistent performers this term, scoring six times and recording 11 assists from 25 appearances across all competitions.
