While Gianluigi Donnarumma is going through a complicated period at Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan spins the perfect love with Mike Maignan.
The succession of Gianluigi Donnarumma promised to be difficult in Milan. It must be said that the Italian goalkeeper left a good mark within the Lombard club, where he played 251 games between 2015 and 2021. But in the end, everything went better than expected. Since Mike Maignan fits the bill perfectly in the Milanese cage. If Milan also has a good start to the season, with only one defeat on the clock, in the Champions League against Liverpool (2-3), it is largely thanks to the French international. Very solid in Serie A, the former Lille has conceded only two goals in five days of the championship, to put the ACM on the podium. Suffice to say that the Rossoneri do not regret at all having placed 15 million euros with bonus on the negotiating table to recruit Maignan during the last summer transfer window.
Maignan is now worth 50 million euros
A trend confirmed by Gianluca Di Marzio: “Milan put in a great shot with Maignan. The Frenchman is an excellent goalkeeper. The leaders found the right replacement for Donnarumma, and at the right price ”. According to the journalist of Sport Sky, Milan are happy to have Maignan rather than Donnarumma for this 2021-2022 exercise. Moreover, it was not the Italian doorman who had decided to leave his training club to join PSG, but it was Milan who had chosen not to extend the contract of the European champion, in the face of salary demands. extravagant works by Mino Raiola. In any case, this decision taken by Paolo Maldini is now unanimous in Milan. Because the former goalkeeper of the champions of France is already estimated at 50 million euros on the transfer market, after a few weeks in San Siro. If he continues his momentum, while jostling Hugo Lloris in the France team, Maignan could see his rating climb a little more. To the delight of AC Milan!
