Reports: Mirante closing in on Milan move – confusion regarding UCL inclusion

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan have struggled with a lot of injuries at the start of this season and it isn’t getting any better. Earlier today, it was revealed that Mike Maignan will undergo surgery, prompting the Rossoneri to act. 

Maignan will have his surgery tomorrow and only then will the exact recovery time be known. However, it says a lot that Milan are now in talks with the 38-year-old veteran Antonio Mirante, who left Roma this summer.

As reported by Daniele Longo, the veteran is closing in on a move to the San Siro and he can be included in the Champions League squad, which would be a huge plus. However, there is some confusion with regards to this.

The official UEFA website states that a team must be able to count on two goalkeepers on list A. If that isn’t the case, with two of them out due to a long-term injury (30 days at least), a new goalkeeper can be added to the squad.

Maignan will have surgery tomorrow, as said, and Alessandro Plizzari is also long-term injured. However, the latter isn’t on list A but rather on list B, which would mean that Milan can’t add a new goalkeeper to their squad.
