Besiktas, who has always kept track of Rebic, clarified their intention, and the negotiations with Milan progressed quickly.

This is a move to reinforce their attacking lines heavily after their rivals Galatasaray made their recent move with prolific striker Mauro Icardi.

During his four years with Milan, Rebic scored 29 goals and provided 17 assists across 123 total appearances. He was a part of the squad that won the Scudetto in the 2021-22 campaign.

Former Liverpool great Origi rejected lucrative offers from Saudi Pro League, while Kjaer may have to search for more game times since he is only the fourth choice in the defense.

The Dane has been a significant player for Milan since he arrived along with Zlatan Ibrahimovic in January 2020. Today, he’s one of the most experienced players on the team and remains an essential person in the locker room.
