Chelsea contact AC Milan over signing Mike Maignan

According to L’Équipe, Chelsea have initiated contact with AC Milan over the possibility of signing Mike Maignan (27) this summer.

Despite interest from the Blues, the French international keeper isn’t for sale from Milan’s perspective. Chelsea are looking for a new starting goalkeeper ahead of the new season, as they’re unsatisfied with current options Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy. Mendy is generating interest ahead of a summer move, with Monaco reportedly interesting suitors

Milan signed Maignan from Lille in 2021 for €15.4m and has proved to be a bargain for the seven-time Champions League winners, notably helping them achieve a first Scudetto in ten years. He has made 69 appearances for the club thus far, achieving 29 clean sheets. 

Maignan has been in stellar form for club and country this season. The former Lille stopper’s performances on the elite level played a major part in the Rossoneri’s success in reaching the Champions League semi-final this season. With Milan ruling out the possibility of a sale this summer, it is likely to take a mammoth bid from Chelsea to consider parting ways with their number one.
