Man Utd Joined Race For 24-year-old Midfielder Valued at £50m

July 12, 2018

Arsenal and Manchester United have joined the race to sign Croatia international forward Ante Rebic, who could leave Eintracht Frankfurt.

Frankfurt sporting director Fredi Bobic claimed that they are yet to field an offer for Croatia striker, however, admitted they will struggle to hold on to the 24-year-old if any club make a big-money offer.

German publication Bild last month reported that Tottenham Hotspur were keen to take the player to north London club and that his Bundesliga team were ready to sell him around £26.3m.

Now the same reports suggested that Man Utd and Arsenal are circling the player who has impressed at World-Cup tournament in Russia as his side reached the finals for the first time in their history.

Although Croatian forward has three years on his current deal with Frankfurt, Bobic is well aware their star man could leave.

“I am very happy about the success of Ante Rebic with the Croatian national team,” Bobic told Sport1. “The players and the coaching team are watching the World Cup games together in the training camp in the USA and, of course, are especially excited about Ante.

“So far, there are no offers available and we’re planning a steady season with Ante Rebic for the new season.

“Of course we know that a lot can happen when a big club makes an offer.

“We cannot compete economically with the big ones, but that’s nothing new.”
