€50m World Cup star: “I deserve Jose Mourinho’s interest”

Eintracht Frankfurt player Ante Rebic has enjoyed good World Cup with Croatia.

Manchester United were reported to have offered €50m for the 24-year-old, while Sevilla and Tottenham are also known to be keen.

Rebic responded to the Red Devil’s rumoured bid: “I am obviously glad to hear and read about how many big coaches and clubs are asking about me. Honestly, I think I deserved it!

“I had a great World Cup and an even better club season with Eintracht. Yes, I know there are concrete offers, I keep in regular contact with my agent.

“I’m glad I proved that everyone can count on me, but as I said there is enough time left until the transfer window closes.”

Frankfurt has denied having been contacted at all over their World Cup star, however, Rebic was hinting that a move could still happen.

“Transfer offers? It’s still early for those stories, the transfer window is open for almost another month,” he said.

“When I moved to Fiorentina the transfer was completed on August 29, and my transfer to Eintracht was done on August 31.]

“Most transfers are done during the last days [of the window] so that is when my situation will be more clear. Now I am an Eintracht player and I have returned to training with my team.”
