Bola Na Rede: Milan eyeing €45m Porto star as potential Maignan replacement

There are some doubts about Mike Maignan’s long-term future at AC Milan and the management might just have his replacement lined up already, a report claims.

Maignan’s name has been circulating in the media more than usual over the past few days, given his latest injury problem combined with his drop in form during parts of this season and the recent Sky report claiming that offers will be taken into consideration this summer.

According to a report on Bola Na Rede in Portugal, Diogo Costa is the man that has been chosen by Milan in the event they lose Maignan, who could be moving to the Premier League this summer.

As per the commentator Luís Pinto Coelho, who spoke in the latest edition of Lei do Mercado, the Portuguese international goalkeeper could be signed by the Rossoneri to replace Maignan given the interest that he is accruing.

The same source stated that the agent Jorge Mendes is ‘already on the ground’ to work on both deals and that Costa could be sold by FC Porto for around €45m.

This season, the 24-year-old has played 43 games for the Portuguese club and he is widely regarded as one of the best young goalkeepers in Europe.
