Turkey international superstar Hakan Calhanoglu has completed a controversial free transfer to Inter Milan.
Hakan joined Inter after his contract with arch-rivals AC Milan expired.
He has signed with Inter until 2024.
The 27-year-old was instrumental in helping Milan return to the Champions League for the first time since 2014.
He contributed four goals and 10 assists.
“It’s a great thing,” Hakan said.
“We know that Inter are a great team, a great club with a nice atmosphere, and great fans.”
“I’m very happy to be here, I’m going on vacation now, but I already have good feelings.”
“We want to win the Scudetto this year too, so we’ll see,” Hakan added.
Hakan already talked to Inzaghi
Calhanoglu added that he had already spoken with new Inter coach Simone Inzaghi.
“Yes, we have already spoken,” he said.
“I know his game system, the 3-5-2 which can change into a 3-4-1-2 depending on the situation.”
“I really like how he spoke; I have heard many positive things.”
“There are great objectives, which is important because I also want to win something in Italy,” he noted.
Milan had hoped to keep the playmaker who joined from Bayer Leverkusen in 2017.
But they were unable to agree a contract extension.
Calhanoglu is the latest in a long line of players to have played for the two Milan clubs.
Among those is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has won Serie A titles with both.
Milan are expected to lose another first-team player on a free transfer this summer.
Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is close to completing a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
