CM: Milan’s goalkeeping hierarchy firmly fixed heading into new season – the four names

By Oliver Fisher -

While speculation continues to swirl with regards to other departments, one area where AC Milan seem to be set is their group of goalkeepers.

As reports, Mike Maignan is the leader of the department first and foremost as the man chosen by directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara to replace Gianluigi Donnarumma, who went to Paris with a suitcase full of expectations.

Fresh from winning Ligue 1 with Lille and participating at Euro 2020 with France, Maignan will be the key cog and probably the first name on the team sheet for Stefano Pioli, but he is not the only interesting player who will be guarding the new.

Ciprian Tatarusanu will enter his second season at Milan as one of the most experienced members of the squad. Having arrived in September 2020 from Lyon, the Romanian has always been ready when called into question, such as in the Europa League games against Sparta Prague where he twice kept clean sheets.

Tatarusanu will be confirmed as second goalkeeper, while Antonio Donnarumma has left the club meaning Alessandro Plizzari should be the third choice, having returned from three years of loans at Ternana, Livorno and Reggina.

The Primavera graduate will be hoping for opportunities to show off his development after being labelled by Berlusconi years ago as a shot-stopper ‘as good as Donnarumma’. Regarding the Primavera, Andreas Kristoffer Jungdal will be the No.1 and is close to renewing his contract until 2024.
