Eintracht Frankfurt attacker Ante Rebic has left the Bundesliga club to join AC Milan on a two-year loan deal, with Andre Silva leaving Serie A to replace him in Germany.
Earlier in August, Eintracht had voiced hope Rebic would remain despite the interest from the San Siro side, with sporting director Bruno Huber claiming they were “still optimistic” of retaining his services.
After the match, Rebic was told by Eintracht head coach Adi Hutter that if he wished to remain with the club, he needed to show it on the field.
Rebic did not feature at all last weekend in a 2-1 loss to RB Leipzig, as he was left out of the squad.
He was returned to the XI in the second leg against Strasbourg, and though Eintracht came away with a 3-0 victory, Rebic himself was dismissed just before the half with a straight red card.
Rebic will make a return to Serie A, having first featured in the Italian top-flight with Fiorentina after a €4.5m move from Croatian slide Split in August 2013.
