Bayern Munich Pursue Calhanoglu Return to Bundesliga

Turkish midfielder in talks with Bayern after successful spell at Inter Milan

Bayern Munich, eager to rebuild after a trophyless 2023-24 season, are making significant moves in the transfer market. Following the agreement to sign Michael Olise from Crystal Palace, Bayern now have their sights set on Hakan Calhanoglu from Inter Milan, according to Bild.

Calhanoglu, who has impressed during his time at Inter, is a target for Bayern as they look to strengthen their attack. The speculation gained traction when TRT Sports reporter Ibrahim Kirkayak, who was with the Turkey national squad for EURO 2024 preparations, directly questioned Calhanoglu about the transfer rumors. Kirkayak reported that Calhanoglu confirmed ongoing talks with Bayern Munich and expressed interest in a potential return to Germany, where he started his professional career.

According to FCInterNews.it, Bayern's offer includes a four-year contract worth €8 million (£7m/$9m) per season, plus bonuses, demonstrating Bayern's determination to secure Calhanoglu's signature.

Inter Milan, having signed Calhanoglu as a free agent from AC Milan in 2021, could stand to make a substantial profit from his sale, with potential transfer fees ranging between €50-60 million (£42m/$54m - £51m/$64m). Meanwhile, Calhanoglu is set to feature for Turkey against Portugal in Euro 2024, showcasing his abilities on the international stage.
