CorSera: Milan find a treasure in Maignan – his valuation is destined to treble

By Oliver Fisher -

A lot of fans and pundits were sceptical about whether AC Milan would be able to replace Gianluigi Donnarumma effectively, but Mike Maignan is now the treasure between the posts.

As il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) points out, the ‘Magic Eagle’ – as they called him in France – has actually become a tactical weapon for Milan to the extent that Donnarumma is now a distant memory, because the Frenchman’s way of understanding and interpreting the role is almost revolutionary.

He is not just a goalkeeper with fantastic reflexes between the posts but he also gets himself involved in the heart of build-up play as we saw during the 1-0 win over Sampdoria when he found Rafael Leao with a long ball over the top.

The feeling is that at 25 years of age Maignan still has room for improvement and in six months his value has doubled from the €15m Milan paid for him to €30m+ and it could soon be €45m. Milan have found a treasure, because goalkeepers with such personality and technique are rare.

  1. Yess, Magic Mike is a treasure for Milan.
    He’s a champion mentality., and he’s a humble person., talking about his price, maybe right now Maignan NOT FoR SAPE for MILAN. We are lucky can recruit him to our team, thank’s for Maldini and Massara.
    Dollarruma is zero if we compare him with The Magic Eagle Maignan. 🇮🇹 🇮🇩
    Grande MILAN.

  2. I think he’s surely worth more than €60m.
    He’s really special and gonna even get better.
    He’s one of the best shot-stopping goalkeepers in the world and, in terms of distribution, I think he’s not far off Ederson of Man City.
    I can’t wait to see him take the place of Lloris in the French national team.

    1. idk if he will push out Lloris: yes he is a much better keeper, but Lloris is a very good captain.

      Lol tho, tbh he is more useful than grealish.
