MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan left winger Ante Rebic is at risk of missing the critical derby tie against Inter Milan this weekend as the Croatia international dislocated his elbow a few weeks ago and has not yet recovered. The winger was the top scorer for Milan last season and even scored in the previous tie against Inter.

Stefano Pioli will reportedly look to keep Hakan Calhanoglu and Alexis Saelemaekers in the starting line up but will need to wade through three options for the left wing. Striker Rafael Leao, Trequartists Brahim Diaz and Winger Samu Castillejo are the other options with the two latter choices playing of the right and Saelemaekers shifting over.

MilanNews.it are reporting separately that right back Andrea Conti has returned to training hence is on the road to recovery whilst Rebic is struggling with his recovery process and is highly unlikely to make it in time for the tie.
