Inter Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu has zero interest in making the move to the Saudi Pro League.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInter1908, who report that the 29-year-old would have no intention of leaving the Nerazzurri even for a huge money deal.

Like many clubs around Europe, Inter have been watching the Saudi Pro League’s summer of big spending with some apprehension.

As the Gazzetta notes, the Saudi transfer window closes during September, later than the European one.

Therefore, clubs like Inter could worry that if a Saudi side makes a late bid to sign one of their players on a huge money contract, it would leave them unable to replace a key squad member.

Inter have already sold Marcelo Brozovic to Al-Nassr. However, the Croat’s move came relatively early on in the summer, giving the Nerazzurri plenty of time to replace the Croat by signing Davide Frattesi.

Hakan Calhanoglu Will Reject Saudi Interest To Stay At Inter

The latest Inter player to emerge as a possible transfer target for the Saudi Pro League is midfielder Calhanoglu.

The 29-year-0old Turkish international only extended his Nerazzurri contract this summer.

However, that isn’t stopping Saudi teams from probing the possibility of signing Calhanoglu.

Al-Hilal have reportedly identified the Inter midfielder as a possible alternative to signing Marco Verratti from Paris Saint-Germain as they still haven’t been able to wrap up a deal for the Italian.

Meanwhile, the Gazzetta reports, Al-Alhi are also looking at Calhanoglu as a possible midfield reinforcement.

But, the newspaper anticipates, these clubs will have very little luck in signing the Turk.

The player has no intention of leaving Inter. He is happy and settled-in where he is, and was glad to sign a new contract.

And similarly, Inter would have little intention of selling an important player in the squad when they have no or next to no time to adequately replace him.
