Hakan Calhanoglu could replace Lucas Biglia as Milan’s ‘regista’ against Udinese on Sunday after the Argentine pulled up in training.
ANSA and Sportitalia both report Biglia picked up a problem in his left thigh and is a doubt for Milan’s Serie A opener this weekend.
If so, they speculate Calhanoglu will play as the deep-lying playmaker in midfield, with Lucas Paqueta and Fabio Borini flanking him.
The Turk was already tried out in the position during the Rossoneri’s recent 0-0 draw with Cesena, despite him eyeing up the role of No 10.
