GdS: Rebic’s future at risk – his valuation and salary causes an issue for the ‘new Milan’

By Oliver Fisher -

The future of Ante Rebic at AC Milan beyond his loan spell is looking increasingly difficult because of a salary cap that the club will impost, a report claims.

It was claimed by La Gazzetta dello Sport earlier on Thursday that CEO Ivan Gazidis wants to lead the Rossoneri into a new era under Ralf Rangnick; one that sees a maximum player salary of €2m-a-year to drag down the wage bill.

The same paper (via MilanLive) are reporting that the new salary policy that Milan would like to adopt – starting from next season – would put the future of Ante Rebic at risk.

The Croatia international has enjoyed a red hot start to 2020, scoring seven goals in all competitions, and he arrived on a two-year loan deal from Eintracht Frankfurt on deadline day back in August.

However, the paper claims that due to his impressive streak it would take around €40million at present to sign him permanently, but it will also be necessary to find a solution regarding his current €3m-a-year deal.

A choice will have to be made: offer the player an agreement within the new boundaries or make an exception. A discussion however that, in all probability, will not be addressed before the summer of 2021.
