Rebic is wanted by Man United if the club fail to land Willian this summer

Mundo Deportivo has reported previously that United are keen on Willian and that the Blues want £62m (€70M) for the winger, a price that makes moving for Rebic look like a very sensible idea.

The winger played a big part in Croatia’s run to the World Cup final this summer, with his displays showing the world exactly what he’s capable of.

Rebic has a decent season with Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt last year, as he scored scored nine and assisted three in all competitions as he helped the club win the DFB Pokal.

Rebic could be a real asset for United should they decide to move for him and sign him, however only time will tell if the club get tired of pursuing Willian and turn their attentions to the likes of Rebic.
