The report states that United are interested in signing the 21-year-old who scored eight goals in 33 Bundesliga appearances last season.
The rising star already has five goals and two assists to his name this season and has built a reputation as being a set-piece specialist. Çalhanoğlu takes just about ever corner for his side and has a phenomenal free-kick scoring record – 22 in the Bundesliga.
Arsenal and Serie A giants AC Milan are also reported to be interested in the 21-year-old play-maker.
