Tuttosport: Eintracht Frankfurt optimistic about chances of recalling winger from Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Eintracht Frankfurt are reportedly confident that they will be able to cut short Ante Rebic’s loan at AC Milan and bring him back in January.

We revealed on December 13 that Rebic made contacts with Eintracht earlier in December through his entourage to gauge the possibility of an early return, and he was photographed dining with his former team-mates as well.

In addition, Eintracht boss Adi Hutter even bumped into him and suggested that a January return is not out of the question for Rebic, who has 0 goals in 177 minutes played since his arrival.

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, but has not settled under either Marco Giampaolo or new head coach Stefano Pioli.

According to the latest from Tuttosport (via MilanNews.it), the winger has two possibilities: to remain with the Rossoneri (unlikely) or to return to Frankfurt.

This is because having already played for two clubs this season, Rebic  cannot move to another team, but Eintracht are optimistic about his potential return.
