CorSera: Boban at work to try and insert option to buy into Ante Rebic loan deal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan director Zvonomir Boban is currently at work to insert an option to turn Ante Rebic’s loan deal from Eintracht Frankfurt into a permanent one, a report claims.

Rebic arrived at Milan on deadline day of the summer transfer window, joining on a two-year dry loan deal with Andre Silva going the other way on the same terms, and after initially struggling he is now going through a purple patch.

The Croatia international has established himself as a key player under head coach Stefano Pioli since the turn of the year by scoring five league goals for Milan in 2020 (half of the team’s total), scoring three match-winners in the process.

According to il Corriere della Sera – as cited by Calciomercato.com – Rebic’s future is still to be written even though his loan is agreed until the end of next season.

The former Fiorentina winger’s value is now €40million due to his excellent recent performances meaning the Bundesliga side are in a strong position, by being able to dictate their asking price.

Boban for his part is already working to insert an option to buy into the current loan deal, but the paper does not say how much for.
