AC Milan phenomenal loan signing Ante Rebic has no buyout option in his current deal. The winger joined from Eintracht Frankfurt at the beginning of the season in a swap deal for Andre Silva . The exchange was pretty last minute as the deal did not fully conclude the negotiations especially regarding buyout clauses at the end of the two years. Rebic has gone on to score 6 goals since January and having an incredible run of form. The 26 year old Croatia international will likely command a huge fee as a result which could complicate the deal when the time comes in the summer of 2021. Andre Silva on the other hand has struggled to cement himself as a starter in Germany but has managed to score 5 goals and provide 2 assists thus far.

According to Sempre Milan, Frankfurt's Sporting Director Bruno Hubner revealed “We had to do the transaction at the last minute, so we opted for a loan exchange without agreeing any sum for future purchase, the operations were initially connected, but now they are absolutely disconnected from each other.”
