Inter reject Bayern Munich’s €40 Million bid for Hakan Calhanoglu


Inter Milan have firmly rejected Bayern Munich’s approach for their star midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu, despite the German giants’ substantial offer. The Turkish international, currently representing his country at EURO 2024, has caught the eye of the Bundesliga giants, but Inter consider him indispensable to their squad.

According to La Repubblica, Bayern Munich tabled a €40 million bid for Calhanoglu, coupled with a lucrative wage package of €8 million per season for the player. The offer reportedly piqued the interest of Calhanoglu and his representatives, who were open to the possibility of a move to the Allianz Arena.

However, Inter’s stance on the matter has been unequivocal. The Nerazzurri swiftly dismissed Bayern’s approach, making it clear that Calhanoglu is not for sale this summer. Inter manager Simone Inzaghi views the 30-year-old as a crucial component of his team, a sentiment echoed by the club’s hierarchy.

Calhanoglu has been a key figure for Inter since joining from city rivals AC Milan in 2021. His performances in the heart of Inter’s midfield have been instrumental in the team’s recent successes, including their run to the Champions League final last season.

Following Inter’s rejection, Bayern Munich took time to consider their options but have ultimately decided to move on to other targets. This development will come as a relief to Inter fans, who have grown to appreciate Calhanoglu’s contributions both in Serie A and on the European stage.
