Maignan asked about possible PSG return: “We can’t know about the future”

By Oliver Fisher -

Mike Maignan has refused to rule out the possibility of one day returning to play for Paris Saint-Germain, remarking that ‘you never know’ in football.

Maignan has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the world since his emergence at Lille and his subsequent move to Milan in 2021, where he replaced Gianluigi Donnarumma. He won the Scudetto in his first season, and is now France’s No.1 too.

These performances have drawn links with a number of top clubs such as Chelsea and even PSG, the club he played at from 2009 to 2015 before joining Lille. This has also prompted widespread reports that the Milan management want to renew his deal.

Maignan will meet his former side PSG in the Champions League group stages but first he is focusing on international duty with France. Immediately after the Roma game he went to Villiers-le-Bel – a club north of the capital – where he started playing between 2003 and 2009.

Le Parisien (via PianetaMilan) report that he spent time with the boys at the club answering their questions, and he was asked about the PSG game coming up.

“I have already played against them when I was at Lille, so it’s not a pitch I don’t know. It will be a great match, at high rhythms, the way I like it,” he said.

“Returning to PSG one day? I’m Parisian but today I’m under contract with Milan. And we can’t know about the future.”

    1. Why are so many obsessed with players leaving for free?

      Do you not just enjoy watching them play in that moment?

      There’s a chance we wouldn’t have won the title without Kessie so I am glad we kept him for as long as we could.

      If it’s about the money, well if we sell him we’re just going to blow the money on a load of other new players that we’ll no doubt lose money eventually. I mean it’s not like football clubs are wrong in any way competently. It’s all ego and sports washing.

      1. Then you dont see the bigger picture. The fact that Donnaruma, Hakan, Kessie left was not the biggest issue. Selling a player means funds for buying a replacement or even investing in more players. Just look at what the Tonali sale helped with the transfers. Serie A is not the Premier league where you have teams wasting hundreds of millions and stil can keep wasting money. So yes if Maignan leaves us I rather have 100 million that can be invested in upgrading the squad rather then him leaving for free when his contract expires.

  1. Dollar is younger i doubt P$$G will sell him unless he wants to leave so they really have no reason to want Mike while Dollar is in the club.
    Mike got a contract till 2026 and he will be 31 that year. I highly doubt he will leave before that unless we stop being competitive + he will sign a new one this season anyway

  2. Maybe we can sell him for 200m and sign 20 GKs for 10m each.

    You know it makes ‘business’ sense. Because football is a very serous ‘business’.
