CM: Milan have clear ideas about the future of Rebic – two important indications arrive

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan reportedly have a firm idea about what the future of Ante Rebic entails, and a sale is certainly not in the plans.

According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Rebic will be at Milanello today with his team-mates having enjoyed a vacation following Croatia’s disappointing campaign at the European Championships. He will return to a Milan team that want to raise the bar, in Italy and in Europe, and they need the best version of Rebic for that.

Back in the 2019-20 campaign, the former Eintracht Frankfurt man closed the first half of the season with no goals, then on January 19 a spark was lit with a brace against Udinese as he netted 11 goals in the second round. Last season, he scored his first league goal on December 23 – in the 3-2 win against Lazio – and hit a total of 11 again.

This year he will occupy the starting left win spot in Pioli’s 4-2-3-1 system and two important indications have confirmed this: the purchase of Giroud and the search for a third centre-forward and the choice of Milan not to listen to offers for Rebic.

He is in fact considered non-transferable and as a result he will play for his spot with Rafael Leao. For both of them it will be a turning point, and hopefully the campaign where they shed the label of being inconsistent.

    The choice of Milan not to listen to offers for Rebic.. In my opinion he is so overated. I mean, he works hard, but if I’d be a Milan player, I’d also work my ass off. I do not understand all the fuzz around him and why the management are so confident in him. Leao scares his opponent more, a rightback has no fear of Rebic dribbling thinking being Ronaldinho. anyhow, if we stay playing with Rebic and leao on the left flank, the weak spot is clear: both of them + Theo as well don’t like to defend, result: Kessie will have to do it all on his own again. If you have Theo at LB, why do you need 2 attacking Left Wings? A more defencive minded winger would be better, with this line-up, every counter I will crap my pants again.

      I bet you would work you ass off, so why dosent Leao?
      Pressing is essential to Milans/Piolis style of play. Leao is too lazy and is too inconsistent forward. If Rebic has a bad day at least he helps Milans press and he is a much better teammate for Theo going forward linking play.
      If Leao plays like we know he can every time, then maybe he can defend his lazyness.

      And who is the defensive minded winger on the market? Or even on the planet? If we talk about winger, there is no such creature exist in our world. If we talk about wingback, then it is a different story. Theo is probably one of the best LWB in the world right now if we play 3 man deffense system rn.

        What about signing Kaio from Santos Maldini have you dropped the ball once again to Juve?
        Big slap in the face to Maldini and Massara again!!!!!

      Unfortunately, Theo is not great as a defender, and when Leao is lazy (almost always) our left side is always smashed as a boiled potato. That’s the reason we suffer a lot when our left wingers don’t press opponent defense/mid back. From this point Rebic is better than Leao, even the latter is more skilled and runs faster.

  2. Shal says:

    I think Rebic and Diaz will be a great duo. Plus there’s our cannonball Theo to complete the trio. Good combo of muscles, passing, and dribbling skills has a great potential to ruin opponent’s defense line. They did well sometimes with Castillejo, but as we all know Samu is not a right person for ACM. Rebic wasn’t good playing with Hakan, they didn’t have connection or something, therefore Ante well with Krunic on number 10s position.
    I think Rebic’s skills can be shown only with a good technical player next to him. Like he scored most of his goals with Zlatan’s assistance.
