Lille goalkeeper Mike Maignan is due in Italy ahead of completing a move to AC Milan, according to a report.
Milan secured qualification for the next Champions League last night with their victory over Atalanta and now it is time to start fine tuning the squad ahead of next season. There are still doubts about some of the players who have been the protagonists this season, and Gianluigi Donnarumma’s contract situation has long been a headache for the management.
According to Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, Maignan is set to join Milan on a permanent deal from Lille. The agreement has been reached and the French goalkeeper has just landed in Milano in order to sign his contract.
It comes after Calciomercato.com reported that Milan have accelerated their pursuit of Maignan, who kept 21 clean sheets in Ligue 1 this season. They stated how agreement has already been found with Lille on the basis of €15m plus bonuses and the player has agreed a five-year contract of €3m per year. The announcement will soon arrive.
