Manchester United have not agreed a deal for Bayern Leverkusen playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu, according to MailOnline’s Mike Keegan.
Following Adnan Januzaj‘s loan move to Borussia Dortmund, many supporters thought a potential replacement was being lined up before the transfer window closes.
Man United reportedly launched a surprise €36m bid for Calhanoglu earlier today.
However, Keegan has insisted that these rumours are without substance:

Aged just 21-years-old, Calhanoglu is a fantastic prospect; with a glorious passing range and ability to play across the midfield, the starlet is potentially just what United need in the midst of Januzaj’s unexpected departure.
However, in the frenzy of deadline day, names such as Calhanoglu’s are expected to come up without any substance, and so should be treated with caution.
United’s transfer business this summer has been lauded by some and lambasted by others, with devotees praising the high profile additions and critics castigating United’s suddenly limited options. But there’s one thing everyone can agree on: United’s transfer activity is unpredictable – thus, everyone should keep their eyes peeled and refrain from ruling out anything just yet.
