AC Milan have been rebuffed in their attempts to sign a new deputy to Mike Maignan by two clubs, according to a report.
According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Maignan should only return to the field at the end of February and there is no good news from the transfer market. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have been looking to give Stefano Pioli a more reliable deputy, with two tracks probed above all.
However, things have not gone to plan. Yesterday Milan were forced to accept that PSG will not let Sergio Rico leave on loan until the end of the season, so his name was crossed off the list.
Maldini and Massara also contacted Atalanta to try and bring forward Marco Sportiello’s arrival, but the €5m they are asking for effectively blocked the deal. Sportiello will only arrive at Milanello from July after a pre-contract was agreed ahead of next season.
