AC Milan have ‘made a promise’ to Ante Rebic that he will remain a Rossoneri player into next season and hopefully beyond, a report claims.
There has been a lot of talk over the last few weeks about making Rebic’s stay at Milan a permanent one. He joined on a two-year dry loan (no option to buy) from Eintracht Frankfurt and was the top scorer in 2019-20, netting 11 goals in Serie A.
According to MilanNews, the Rossoneri have made a promise to Rebic that he will continue to be a Milan player. With Eintracht Frankfurt and his agent Fali Ramadani there are constant contacts to understand how to circumvent the Fiorentina clause, which entitles them to 50% of the future resale fee of the Croatian.
The solution could be to let the contracts of both Rebic and André Silva expire (both set to run out in 2022) with an extra year of loan. This would then mean both players could sign for Milan and Eintracht respectively on free transfers and La Viola would not get a penny.
Fiorentina meanwhile are not playing ball regarding Nikola Milenkovic, so Milan would likely have no problem trying to pull something like this on them.
