AC Milan playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu affirms that his future with the Rossoneri does not solely rely on Champions League qualification.

AC Milan playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu has insisted that his Rossoneri future does not hinge on whether the club qualify for the Champions League.

The Turkey international is currently due to become a free agent at the end of the season and has been linked with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal in recent months.

Milan are still waiting to guarantee a place in the Champions League following Sunday's goalless draw with Cagliari, but failure to qualify for Europe's top competition will not impact Calhanoglu's decision-making.

Speaking to Sky Sport Italia, the 27-year-old said: "I am very happy that we reached this point. We're fired up and want to book our spot in the Champions League.

"I always said that I wanted to get into the Champions League with Milan. However, my future does not depend on the Champions League. I am very happy to be here playing for Milan.

"At the end of the season, I will sit down with Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara to discuss my future. They are the ones in charge and I respect them."

Calhanoglu has scored four goals and assisted 10 more in 32 Serie A appearances this term, and Milan lie third in the table - one point clear of fifth-placed Juventus - before the final matchday of the 2020-21 season.
