In recent years the genre of Turkish telenovelas has taken the world by storm.
Unstoppable plots, pathos and constant tears have given many the much-needed detachment from the uncomplicated routine and the plague that has entered our lives out of nowhere.
In recent months, a ridiculous script has become a reality in Milan.
There, in the fashion city, a Turkish telenovela is being woven, one that even a super-creator could not have produced.
The main protagonist: Hakan Chelenhaulo.
Sub-players: ex-Milan and new love Inter.
For four years the Cannes played on the red side of San Siro, and if you sum up that period, you could say that great success was not there.
The German-born, who arrived in 2017 from Bayer to Berkusen, may have recorded a few moments of magic, but mostly did not deliver the goods.
He did not produce enough numbers, seemed indifferent on the pitch and the crowd started to moan at the same time as the team kept giving him back.

Was four years on the red side of San Siro,
Precisely after last season, when AC Milan finally began to make signs of returning to the big days and fighting for the championship, Cannes decided he deserved more, demanded a high salary increase, and finally did not sign a new contract.
The next episode in the saga added a twist to the plot, when Christian Eriksen, then an Inter player, crashed on the pitch in Denmark's first match at Euro 2020 and was forced to stop playing to this day.
The Narazuri needed an offensive link, recognized the opportunity and turned to Hakan, who jumped on the offer without blinking an eye.
Just when Milan were finally starting to raise their heads, precisely after Inter's first championship in a decade and after the Eriksen disaster, there was a flaw in crossing this road, and Cannes played the ultimate traitor.
"Had it not been for what happened to Eriksen, he would never have signed for Inter. No team has ever been interested in him before, he took advantage of a tragic situation," Zlatan Ibrahimovic wrote in his recently published autobiography, igniting the fire.

Zlatan and Rossoneri's anger grows as the season progresses.
Hakan is so far the player of the season for Inter, who picked up the Super Cup a week ago and is at the top of the Serie A, two points (and a game missing) more than AC Milan.
He scored six goals, netted seven and his connection with coach Simona Inzaghi was perfect.
The 3-5-2 formation, with the Turk playing as the left midfielder in the middle trio, helps Hakan express himself on the pitch.
According to Whoscored, the 27-year-old, who likes to kick from a distance, does so more accurately, more precisely in his dedication, bouncing his number of successful dribbles and gaining the confidence to move forward, with Marcelo Brozovic and Nicola Barla covering for him.
Another reason for Milan's anger is the fact that Kan does not miss any opportunity to sprinkle salt on her wounds.
"We have a better staff than AC Milan, I do not regret my move and I must thank the coach, because he wanted me very much and believed in me," he said in an interview and stung his former coach Stefano Fioli.

Particularly exciting catharsis,
In most cases the main character in the telenovela ends her journey well, even if she makes quite a few mistakes along the way.
There are four more months until the end of the season, but as it seems at the moment - Hakan is on his way to a particularly exciting catharsis, just as he and the blue side of Milan dream of.
