CorSport: Milan in talks over €25m winger deal – the Rossoneri have a trump card

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have a plan to turn winger Ante Rebic’s stay from a loan into a more permanent one, a report claims, with the asking price revealed.

The Croatia international arrived in the summer on a two-year loan deal fro Eintracht Frankfurt and struggled up until the Christmas break, but he exploded afterwards scoring seven goals in 2020 alone to become the outright top scorer for the season.

According to il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanLive), Milan are already working to redeem Rebic well before the loan expires , and contacts have already started between clubs despite the agreement expiring on 30 June 2021.

The Rossoneri management have already spoke to Fredi Bobic, Eintracht’s sporting director, to probe the ground on how to sign Rebic permanently. The former Fiorentina man is valued at no less than €25m, while La Viola are actually owed money from his sale due to a clause negotiated when he moved to Germany.

The trump card could be called André Silva. The Portugal striker went the other way on the same terms last summer, and his inclusion in the negotiation could be enough to get the deal over the line.
