Di Marzio: Milan’s €15m investment on Maignan pays off – he is now worth €40-50m

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan made the economic decision to move on from Gianluigi Donnarumma and replace him, with Gianluca Di Marzio highlighting how it seems to have been the right move.

Speaking to Sky (via MilanNews), Di Marzio commented on Milan’s most recent summer transfer market, confirming that it was the Rossoneri’s choice not to renew Gianluigi Donnarumma and Hakan Calhanoglu purely because they made the decision not to go beyond certain limits.

There were some worries about how Milan would replace the Italy international, but the management acted quickly to sign Mike Maignan from Ligue 1 champions Lille for €15m, including bonuses.

The Frenchman is an excellent goalkeeper, and now he is perhaps already worth €40-50m as per the journalist, so it can be said that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have come away from the whole situation deserving praise for a seamless transition.

      At this point i personally wouldnt care if he joined them as psg wouldnt let him go for a small ammount after just signing him and it would be a blast to see him getting harassed by milan fans at minimum twice a season and who knows if other fan groups would follow troop as well just because he would become an easy target.

    Viva Mike… Dollaruma tongue out I told you, I told you but you believe a greedy agent and throw your career to a dog that has no loyalty. Now your eye dey red. Why belle just dey sweet me. I will win champion league at PSG maybe on the bench. But in reality PSG will suffer one of their worst humiliating defeat in champions league this year. Dollar can bet with me if he thinks I am lying. He will commit the blunder that day. Mark today down. How the mighty have fallen. Milan is the surprise package this year. Quote me anywhere.
