Milan: Calhanoglu to replace Biglia?

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.
