CM: No rush regarding future of Rebic but Fiorentina clause makes things difficult

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are in no hurry to resolve the future of Ante Rebic but a clause in his current deal at Eintracht Frankfurt could provide an obstacle, it is claimed.

Calciomercato.com reports that Rebic apologised after the game on Friday night and the following day to his team-mates, coach and the club following his red card against Juventus.

Now, the goal of the Croatia international is to get Milan to Europe. He was not fined by the club and will still be Pioli’s centre-forward for the game against Lecce Monday 22 June.

It means that Rafael Leao will be snubbed once again as Pioli relies on Rebic to try and cover for the firepower missing with Zlatan Ibrahimovic out injured.

Regarding the future of the 26-year-old however there is no hurry. He is on loan until 2021 and the club would like to keep him even with Ralf Rangnick set to arrive and implement a new revolution.

The Bundesliga club continue to quote a high asking price for Rebic though due to one key factor: 50% of the amount recouped from the sale of the winger will go to his old club Fiorentina, as per the agreement in his current deal.
