Ante Rebic has cast doubt upon his long-term future with AC Milan by revealing his desire to return to parent club Eintracht Frankfurt ‘one day’.
Rebic arrived last summer on a two-year loan deal from the Bundesliga side but struggled up until the Christmas break. However, he has exploded since, scoring seven goals in 2020 alone (all competitions) to become the outright top scorer for the season.
It was reported over the weekend by il Corriere dello Sport that Milan are already working to sign Rebic permanently, with contacts underway and the possibility of Andre Silva – who moved the other way on the same terms as part of the loan deal – being used to bring down the €25m asking price.
However, Rebic has given an interview to the Eintracht Frankfurt official website in which he has hinted that his time with the German club is far from done.
“Of course, I keep myself up to date on Eintracht games,” he explained (via Bundesliga.com).
“I followed the matches until the last moment before coronavirus. I saw that the team played well but rarely had luck on their side. Hopefully everything will fall into place in the course of the season.
“When the league restarts I’ll pursue Frankfurt as the loyal fan I’ve always been. I’m in touch with [Eintracht’s Serbia midfielder] Mijat Gacinovic almost every day. One day I’d surely like to return to Frankfurt.”
