Official: Rebić joins Milan from Eintracht on a permanent basis

Ante Rebić has signed a contract until 2025 after impressing greatly in his season on loan at Milan in 2019-20.

Rebić joined Milan on a two-year loan deal from Eintracht Frankfurt last summer in exchange for André Silva.

After a very difficult first half of the season, Ante won a place in the starting XI of Milan (and in the heart of the fans), finishing the season as the top scorer of the Rossoneri with 12 goals in all competitions.

Silva and Rebić were impressive on their first year at their respective clubs, so much so that Eintracht Frankfurt and Milan both decided to sign the players on a permanent basis. After Silva was announced by the German club on Thursday, today was the turn of the Diavolo to make a statement:

“Milan is pleased to announce the permanent signing of Ante Rebić from Eintracht Frankfurt following his loan spell at the Club last season. The Croatian forward’s contract will end on 30 June 2025. Ante continues his Rossoneri journey after scoring 12 goals in 30 appearances during the 19/20 season, finishing as the team’s top scorer. The player will wear the number 12 jersey.”

Rebić, who wore the #18 last year but has decided to change (Andrea Conti who previously wore the #12 shirt has decided to take the #14 jersey), reportedly (per BILD) joins for a fee close to zero, while Silva joined Eintracht for €9m. This deal works out well for the books of both Milan and Frankfurt, while the big losers are Fiorentina who were owned 50% of the fee of Rebić’s future sale.

Ante is suspended for three games in the Europa League due to a punishment he received from his time at Eintracht, so he won’t take part in Thursday’s match against Shamrock Rovers.

Oh well, which business has Fiorentina done with Milan that is favourable ?..There is no negotiation that Fiorentina has not proved very difficult for Milan..My believe is no matter how, if there is no competing from any other clubs and they need money, they will definitely sell…The good thing is that Chiesa and Milenchovic have refused to renewed their contract…Football between clubs should be about business and not to cut your nose to spite your face

so A.Silva transfer being 9M is just a rumor, might be, but it’s not official. I’m so interested by the details of this deal.
did we play dirty or played by the book? with all the secrecy i guess the first option.
will we be able to try Milenkovic and/or Chiesa deals now?

So technically we screwed comisso…..he still thinks in these tiring economic times he can still sell for tons of millions….well best of luck but tbh we did tried everything to satisfy him involving Paqueta and Rebic and everything but he was holding on to his astronomical demands which he is right because he owns players…..so best of luck dealing with respective agents with expiring contracts in two years…..comisso welcome to Italian seria a
