A new name has emerged as a potential option to replace Gianluigi Donnarumma should he leave on a free transfer, a report claims.
Donnarumma’s contract is set to expire in less than two months and amid fan anger and a media frenzy there is nothing to suggest that an agreement is imminent or even that talks are progressing in the right direction.
RMC Sport are reporting that Milan have reached an agreement in principle with Mike Maignan of Lille over a five-year contract. The agreement is conditional on Donnarumma’s departure, while a fee has also been agreed with Lille and the amount of the transfer is expected to be around €15m.
According to reports from some Belgian media – as cited by TMW – Maignan is not the only name probed by the Rossoneri, who are always vigilant to young talents around Europe. In this sense, interest in Maarten Vandevoordt has emerged.
Vandevoordt currently plays for Genk, and back on 10 December 2019 he became the youngest goalkeeper in UEFA Champions League history at 17 years and 287 days, and he continues to show a lot of promise.
