Inter sign Hakan Calhanoglu from AC Milan on a three-year deal. The 27-year old will receive €4.5 million this year, and €5 million for the next two years. Further, the Turkish footballer will replace Christian Eriksen as a midfielder in the next season. Eriksen recently fell unconscious in the middle of the game. He suffered a sudden cardiac arrest. While the 29-year old is out of the hospital and is feeling much better, he might need more rest.
Since he is 29 years old it is quite early for an incident like this, he wouldn’t be playing for Inter in the next season. The Danish midfielder has got a defibrillator for his heart that will monitor and notify of any problems from the beginning. Calhanoglu has come to Inter on a free transfer. The 27-year old has already talked to Simon Inzaghi who has welcomed him to the club. He will settle into Inzaghi’s system well. Since his contract was about to end in nine days, with no new offers for renewal, Inter bagged the Turkish footballer as soon as possible.
