CM: Milan want to sign winger ‘at all costs’ – club ‘already at work’ to close deal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are already at work trying to turn Ante Rebic’s loan stay at the club into a permanent deal, a report claims.

The Croatia international joined late in the summer transfer window from Eintracht Frankfurt on a two-year dry loan with Andre Silva heading in the opposite direction on the same terms.

After struggling for playing time initially Rebic has exploded in 2020, becoming the club’s top scorer in all competitions with seven goals this calendar year already.

According to Calciomercato.com, Milan see Rebic as ‘a purchase to be completed at all costs’ with some pressure now beginning to arrive.

As mentioned, his stay at the club is not due to end until June 2021 and the fact that the 26-year-old’s contract expires in 2022 should be advantageous for the Rossoneri in negotiations.

However, the fact that COVID-19 has suspended football means that his rise has not continued, therefore now is seen as the right time to try and begin talks, otherwise if his stellar form had continued then Eintracht could raise their valuation.

Milan are already at work: the goal is to close the Rebic deal as soon as possible, the report concludes.
