RB Leipzig deem Calhanoglu deal impossible
RB Leipzig head coach Ralf Rangnick has poured cold water on a deal to bring the Turkish forward Hakan Calhanoglu from AC Milan terming a deal for the former Bayer Leverkusen player impossible.
According to reports in Calciomercato.com, Leipzig had reportedly agreed on a €20m for Calhanoglu and only needed Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso to give the green light to the transfer.
However, Coach and sporting director Ralf Rangnick told reporters: “The deal is financially impossible.
“Obviously we know him, given he played in the Bundesliga, but now he plays for Milan.
“We already knew his price, so it’s absolutely not possible for us to make a move from a financial standpoint.”
