The Red Devils spent heavily over the summer to bolster their ranks, but were still doing business late on after missing out on a host of targets.
Calhanoglu was one of the names in the mix as the clock ticked towards the deadline, and reports claim that he’s back on the club’s agenda heading into 2016.
The Turkey international is famous for his free-kick prowess, with no player in any of Europe’s major leagues scoring more times from direct set-pieces than him last season.
As well as his rocket shot, the 21-year-old is an adept passer of the ball and has been lauded for his composure as well as his tenacity.
He currently plies his trade with Bundesliga outfit Leverkusen, whom he joined from divisional rivals Hamburg in 2014.
