AC Milan’s hopes of signing winger Ante Rebic on a permanent deal have been made more complicated by Fiorentina, a report claims.
As La Gazzetta dello Sport reports (via MilanNews), the Croatia international has score 11 goals in the league since the turn of the year and is dragging the Rossoneri towards the Europa League.
The player arrived last summer on a two-year loan from Eintracht Frankfurt who in exchange took André Silva with the same formula.
The paper claims that Milan wish to begin discussions over a permanent move for Rebic, but there is a large obstacle that makes everything more complicated.
Four years ago when Fiorentina sold the Croat to Eintracht, Fiorentina included a 50% resale clause in the agreement. In practice, if Eintracht collects €30million from his sale, half of that figure must be paid to La Viola.
Therefore, the German club would like to wait a few weeks to set up an alternative route with Milan, who are intent on signing the 26-year-old despite the big changes that are expected to happen at managerial level.
