AC Milan are determined to complete the purchase of Ante Rebic from Eintracht Frankfurt this summer, according to a report.
Monday’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanLive) notes how Milan are ready to try and reunite the Rebic and Luka Jovic tandem that was so fearsome at Eintracht Frankfurt last season.
First of all though the Rossoneri must ensure that the Croatia international will stay beyond next summer. Rebic arrived on a two-year loan from the Bundesliga side, but Milan have no option or obligation to buy. Everything will therefore have to be renegotiated, with the German club ready to leverage on his impressive showing in 2020 to get as much as possible.
But Milan have two cards to play: one is the strength of the player’s willingness to remain, and the other is to insert André Silva to lower the price tag.
They will try to delay the talks as close to the end of the loan as possible too as Rebic’s deal expires in 2022, something that is likely to mean Eintracht cannot demand a huge fee.
