Chelsea, Liverpool target Hakan Çalhano?lu admits Hamburg exit plans

Hamburg SV midfielder Hakan Çalhano?lu is ready to leave the fallen giants.

The youngster is being linked with Liverpool and Chelsea.

"They were shocked [Carl Jarchow and Oliver Kreuzer] when I told them that I wanted to go. They had not expected, because for them I was always the small, quiet Hakan," he told the Hamburger Morgenpost.

"Mr. Jarchow had a bet with newspaper reporters that I would stay with HSV if we got relegated.

"I thought that was disrespectful. I gave everything for HSV and he made bets about my future.

"I came here great hope, but I lost it. The coaching change, the whole discussion. For me as a young player that was hard to deal with."
