AC Milan do in fact have an option to buy on Ante Rebic despite no mention in the official statement, according to a report.
The Rossoneri announced the capture of Rebic on Monday’s transfer deadline day, confirming the arrival of the Croatia international on a two-year loan deal.
A number of different outlets reported that the deal for Rebic – plus to one which sent Andre Silva the other way to Eintracht Frankfurt – included an option to buy at the end of the loan period.
La Gazzetta dello Sport‘s Nicolo Schira stated on Twitter that the basis of the deal is a two-year loan spell which will cost €5million, with an option to buy at the end of that for €20m.
Despite this, there was no mention of any option or obligation to make the move permanent in the official statement’s of either club, something which perplexed supporters.
However, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport on Tuesday (via Calciomercato), there is in fact the option to buy inserted into both deals.
The figure is set at €25million, which would make the total cost of each individual deal €30m when factoring in the €5m paid for the initial two year loan.
