Manchester United have entered the race to sign Croatia midfielder, Ante Rebic, but talks will only progress after the World Cup.
That’s according to SportBild, per The Metro, who say that the 24-year-old is also attracting interest from Arsenal and Napoli; which tells you everything you need to know about his ability.
United’s midfield issues have been pretty evident over the last two or three seasons. Michael Carrick has been ageing and hasn’t been able to play every week, Marouane Fellaini has drifted in and out, as has Paul Pogba. Fred’s arrival will no doubt help, but I still don’t think that’s enough.
While Rebic is still over in Russia, it’s highly unlikely that anything concrete will happen until he’s back at home. Currently plying his trade for Eintracht Frankfurt, there is certainly an opportunity for him to move on to bigger and better things.
Hopefully, the transfer fee won’t be too ridiculous, either, but he has had an excellent World Cup, and interest in him will only have rise. As a back-up option, I’d love to see him at Old Trafford. It could well be an astute piece of business by manager Jose Mourinho.
