The new wall of Europe is in Milan: Maignan

A muscle injury left him without the possibility of going to the World Cup in Qatar, but Didier Deschamps did not hesitate to give him the starting position for France before Hugo Lloris withdrew. Mike Maignan (27 years old, French Guiana) He is France’s goalkeeper of the future. The Milan goalkeeper who stopped Naples with great interventions at San Siro in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals. The wall to which they cling rossoneri to overcome the hell of Maradona and reach the semifinals of the highest continental club competition.

Maignan hasn’t been able to play much this season due to injury, but when he did he’s been fundamental. Two clean sheets in the last two Champions League games (against Tottenham and Napoli) that keep Milan dreaming of repeating past successes. Maignan is at the level of Courtois, Ederson, Kepa… in this Champions League.

Maignan is another historic PSG mistake. The goalkeeper is a youth player from the Paris entity, which allowed him to leave for a million euros to Lille in 2015. Six years later, Milan thought of Maignan when Donnarumma decided to join PSG. A great decision from the technical office of Massaro and Maldini. A great goalkeeper at a bargain price: €15.3M. The Frenchman was the goalkeeper of the Lille that ‘stole’ Ligue 1 from PSG in the 2020-2021 season. A league title that he completed with Serie A last season. Maignan landed on the right foot at Milan and was essential at the Scudetto del Milan in Italy. No one remembers Luigi Donnarumma at the San Siro anymore. There is Maignan for a while in Milan.
