He never scored, in fact he never played. At some point, towards December, they even wanted to send him back to the Eintracht. It looks like another era. Now instead Ante Rebic essential. There is always. And always marks. If the Devil has a soul again, much of his credit. And who, that is Stefano Pioli, believed in him even when nobody wanted to see him anymore. The rebirth of the Croatian coincided instead with the rebirth of Milan. Impressive numbers, like his climb: 9 goals between the championship and the Italian Cup, all in 2020. Wednesday evening in Ferrara with the Spal (on TV on Sky from 21.45) we will see several changes, but he will be there. Too precious.
Rebic is 26 years old, talented and with ample room for improvement. The perfect identik of the new Elliott course. Even Rangnick, in the various talks he had with the emissaries of the AC Milan club, said yes: if the German manager arrives, as seems increasingly probable, Ante will be one of the cornerstones of the new course. The issue is more complex. Why Rebic on loan from Eintracht with a two-year agreement that expires in June 2021. Last summer at the same time Andr Silva he made the reverse route, from Milan to Frankfurt. The two operations are for unrelated. That’s why Milan now wants to buy its new bomber outright. The first contacts with his agent Ramadani have already been started. Filter optimism.
Already in summer the CEO Gazidis could make an offer. We are around 25-30 million. If he continued to score at this rate, his assessment would go up again. Hence Milan’s plan to play in advance. Rebic has already made it clear that he is interested. Uno of the knots the engagement: today it earns 3 million net and it is clear that in case of purchase outright it will demand an increase. The new wage ceiling of 2.5, but the directives are clear: as in the case of Donnarumma, exceptions are possible.
Further note: Ramadani the same agent as Luka Jovic, one of Milan’s market objectives. Who knows that one negotiation will not facilitate the other. The two also made a fixed couple at Eintracht. There is feeling. Ante has everything, runs and has qualities: the time has come for him to become a top player said Tuesday Pioli. He prepares a full-bodied reshuffle at Spal’s house tonight (Paquet for Bonaventura one of the news) but he can count on one more weapon: Zlatan Ibrahimovic has recovered from the injury to his calf and will be on the bench. A lion who is always hungry for the effective definition of the Rossoneri coach.
The Spal inguaiata, after two consecutive losses now last together with Brescia. Di Biagio believes it (not yet finished) but tonight we will need a business: Milan had not been so well for a long time, as the two successes spun with Lecce and Rome have shown. Above all, he cannot fail if he wants to continue his sprint for Europe. After Ferrara, awaited by a triple fire test: Lazio, Juventus, Naples. Wednesday, again at 9:45 pm, Verona-Parma, direct clash. If the Devil does not stumble, it can be the decisive extension.
