Falk: Bayern Munich put Milan star on list of targets after damaging injury

By Oliver Fisher -

Mike Maignan is on the list of goalkeeping targets for Bayern Munich as they may need to seek a replacement for Manuel Neuer, a report claims.

Bayern have been pushed into a difficult situation because first-choice goalkeeper Neuer could be sidelined for ‘up to ten weeks’ with an injury that he sustained, while second-choice Yann Sommer has joined Inter.

According to Christian Falk of SportBild, the Bavarian side have set the ball rolling to try and find potential cover who could also be a long-term replacement for the German, who is now 37 years of age.

Bayern discussed a couple of candidates including Maignan and Diogo Costa (23, Porto) in the event that Neuer’s comeback could no longer be estimated in terms of time.

It comes amid speculation that Milan wish to renew the contract of the Frenchman, who is one of the undisputed leaders of the squad and he is still under a contract that runs until 2026.

  1. nothing to do with article but HEAR ME OUT: if Gerry with his good relations with Todd Boehly could get Lukaku on a cheap loan with option to buy and they pay most of the salary why not? He’s 30 so in his prime and we need another ST option, realistically I’d rather have him here than just Giroud and Okafor

      1. Fair at this point with Pioli choosing Krunic as a valuable piece, I don’t want to see Pioli complaining about anything as he’s got everything he seemed to wish for, now it’s up to him to make the results happen if not he needs to go

    1. I actually don’t agree with him being pass his prime. He’s still very good skill wise.

      But my goodness the guy is so toxic I wouldn’t want him near this team. Imagine getting fans of Juventus and Inter agreeing on not wanting him anywhere near. You think it would be a good idea to bring such a personality near our team? No thanks.

      That kind of attitude rubs off on younger players. We don’t need that.

  2. I wish one day milan would give the arm band to maignan, even as a vice captain.
    He certainly has the leadership and the charisma.
    Despite all their skills, i don’t think theo or leao has that for now

      1. Yes, definitely not calabria too.
        He’s the captain only because he’s one of the longest member, and he’s italian.
        For now, the only starter that i think should be the captain is maignan.

    1. Ithink MIke is a good shout for captain. He’s not going to lose his place anytime soon and he has all the minerals to lead..
