Mike Maignan returns to Milan from France amid World Cup doubts

Mike Maignan’s World Cup future hangs in the balance as the Milan goalkeeper is trying to find the best route to recovery ahead of the World Cup campaign in Qatar.

According to L’Équipe, Maignan will return to Milan as his current employers want him to undergo rehabilitation under the supervision of the club doctors.

The former Lille man sustained a calf injury in France’s UEFA Nations League fixture against Austria in September.

While it was previously expected that he would return well before the World Cup and make the French squad as a deputy to Hugo Lloris, the latest blow to that injured calf has put his chances of representing France in the upcoming World Cup at risk.

Didier Deschamps will announce the French squad for the World Cup on November 9. The Rossoneri goalkeeper arrived at Clairefontaine on Monday to complete his recovery under the guidance of the French national team doctors. But the idea doesn’t seemingly interest Milan, who have summoned their first-choice goalkeeper back to the Italian club. As reported previously, the injury could keep him out of action for four weeks to 45 days.
