Eintracht Frankfurt manager Adi Hutter has opened up to the idea of Ante Rebic ending his loan at AC Milan early to return to Germany.
The Croatia international arrived on deadline day from the Bundesliga side on a two-year loan deal, with Andre Silva going the other way on the same terms as part of the agreement.
However, Rebic has struggle to adapt to life back in Italy and has not even amassed 200 minutes of competitive action yet for the Rossoneri.
We revealed on December 13 that Rebic made contacts with Eintracht Frankfurt earlier in December through his entourage to gauge the possibility of an early return.
Now, their manager Adi Hutter has revealed details on their encounter and seemingly suggested that a January return is not out of the question.
“I met Rebic in the same restaurant by luck,” he revealed (via MilanEye).
“We spoke for 20 minutes, it was a nice chat. He’s never untied from Eintracht, he’s done well here. I was happy to see him as he was happy to meet his former teammates.
“If Rebic can return in January? He is at Milan on loan, surely he will return but I don’t know when. We will see what happens.”
