Ante Rebić has accepted Turkey and will join Beşiktaş on a permanent deal.

After just less than 4 years at Milan, it’s time for Ante to say goodbye to the Red and Black world and start a new experience, this time in Turkey.

Rebić was initially a starter for the Diavolo but after the explosion of Rafael Leão, he found himself mostly in a back-up role, and his performances started to get worse and worse as time went on.

In addition, his relationship with coach Stefano Pioli deteriorated to the point that Pioli left him out of the squad several times at the end of last season due to technical choices, and the Croatian was not taken to the United States tour.

Beşiktaş came forward with an offer to sign Rebić and today (Friday), as reported by, Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia, Sercan Dikme of Sports Digitale and others, things have accelerated to the point that it’s practically a given that Ante will be a player of the Turkish side next season.

The exact details of the deal remain to be understood but it will be a permanent transfer and not a loan deal. Some are talking about a €0.5m base price with bonuses of up €1.5m, while Di Marzio claims Beşiktaş will not pay anything for Rebić up front, and will only pay €2m in bonuses should certain parameters be achieved. He’ll fly to Turkey either tonight or tomorrow.

Milan have been keen to take Rebić off their books, as the 29-year-old is on €3.5m per season net. He has a contract until 2025, which according to Sky means the Diavolo will save €14m in wages.
