Fenerbahce Place Bid to Acquire Milan Backup Attacker

Fenerbahce have Ante Rebic in their crosshairs. They have until March 5th to come to terms with Milan and the player. They have offered a loan with option to buy, and they are waiting for an answer, Sporx relays (via Virgilio).

The Croat is under contract with the reigning Serie A champions until 2025. On the other hand, he has had a very limited role this season, partly due to multiple injuries. He has starred in 20 total matches, starting just 7 times. He has been in the XI once in 2023, featuring for 28 minutes in other 5 appearances.

Even if Rebic doesn’t join Fenerbahce, he’s highly likely to depart Milan in the summer. He might move to Bundesliga, La Gazzetta dello Sport relays (via OneFootball). He has been outshined by Rafael Leao and Brahim Diaz in the last campaign and a half and hasn’t shown well in the rare instances when he was called upon.

The 29-year-old has logged three goals and two assists in 2022/2023. However, his last offensive contribution dates back to October 16th, when he set up a teammate in the Verona game. He had a brace in the opener versus Udinese, then he hit the net and provided a helper off the bench in the Empoli game in Round Eight.

Our Take on Rebic and Fenerbahce

It’s ironic that the links have surfaced at a time when they actually need him, as Rafael Leao is suspended against Fiorentina. It’s unlikely he’ll leave now unless the offer is really good, which doesn’t appear to be the case, but chances are he’ll transfer in the summer.
