There is simply no doubting that Mike Maignan already looks like one of Milan’s best pieces of business in recent years, as he has adapted perfectly to life in Serie A.
Calciomercato.com writes that the best goalkeeper in Europe based on form, according to the statistics collected in the first part of the season, is currently Maignan. Gianluigi Donnarumma decided not to sign a new contract and instead to try a new experience at PSG, with some fearing Milan might feel the absence, but the opposite is true.
Milan paid €15m including bonuses to Lille for Maignan, and Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara seem to have secured a gem as the 25-year-old has increased his value exponentially to around the €40-50m mark. Their skill was to find the right replacement at the right price.
Only 3 goals conceded in the league and 3 in the Champions League against Liverpool, at an average of 0.58 goals conceded per 90, in the 7 matches played so far. He has saved 80% of the shots on target he has faced and has prevented 8.16 goals. He is the best in Europe, at least for now.
