AC Milan have told the entourage of Ante Rebic that they wish to sign him on a permanent deal but his asking price is steep, a report claims.
The Croatia international has been nothing short of sensational since the turn of the year, netting eight goals in his last nine Serie A games and nine in all competitions.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews24), Milan have told Rebic’s representative and his parent club Eintracht Frankfurt that they want to sign him permanently once his loan his up.
Until a few months ago, the Rossoneri could have signed him for just €25million as that was the asking price of the Bundesliga side, but given his excellent recent form the asking price of German demand could rise to €40million.
In addition, Eintracht will have to give 50% of the proceeds to Fiorentina. In any case, Milan are hoping to be able to include André Silva in the negotiation so as to lower the demands.
