“In Milan, the derby is another thing altogether compared to other cities,” Calhanoglu told Il Corriere dello Sport.
“I know the AC Milan defenders, like so they know me. I will have to think about how to help my teammates.
“If I score, will I celebrate? I will like always.”

Despite his declarations, Calhanoglu is still on good speaking terms with his former teammates at AC Milan.
“I spent four good years at Milan, I have many friends there,” he said. “There were tough times too, but the last two seasons have been better.
“Inter is a good team: I chose to come here because I like to face new challenges.”
