Calhanoglu: Man United and Barcelona hard to turn down

The Turkey international has made a name for himself as a free-kick specialist in recent years and has attracted attention across Europe
Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu has admitted that he would find it hard to reject Manchester United or Barcelona, should either of the two clubs make an offer.

Calhanoglu has established himself in the Bayer side over recent years, capturing attention with some remarkable free-kicks, and has been widely linked with a move away from the Bundesliga.

But speaking after the club's Champions League defeat to Roma, the midfielder suggested he would consider an offer from both clubs, although no approaches have been made by either United or Barcelona.

"Barcelona and Manchester United are huge clubs. It would be difficult to turn them down but I have not said anything about any transfers or anything of the sort," he told Turkish broadcasters Lig TV.

The 21-year-old also acknowledged his head would be turned if Champions League holders Barcelona made a move, but says any talk of a move to Camp Nou is just speculation.

"I have not said anything and there is nothing to talk about, but of course if Barcelona made an offer I would have to consider it," Calhanoglu added.
