Frankfurt’s sporting director Fredi Bobic has admitted Manchester United target Ante Rebic will be allowed to leave this summer for the right price.
Jose Mourinho has expressed an interest in securing a right sided forward – a position no player nailed down last season – and made enquiries over the availability of Willian back in May.
Rebic has emerged as another target following a series of impressive displays at the World Cup – most notably in the 3-0 trouncing of Argentina.
And Bobic, when asked about the winger, noted that the club would part ways with the Croat if the bid was high enough.
“I am very happy about the success of Ante Rebic with the Croatian national team,” he said.
“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.”
Rebic has brought the kind of attacking attitude Mourinho loves to see: diligently hardworking, useful on the ball, always running into the space, bold in the box. His energy levels, for one thing, are enough to get the Portuguese excited.
But getting him won’t be easy. The 24-year-old has attracted the attention of several Premier League clubs, with Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool both mentioned as potential suitors, while Bayern Munich appear to be in pole position to secure his services.
