‘Too early to say’ – Fabrizio Romano addresses Man City links with Milan star

By Oliver Fisher -

Fabrizio Romano believes that it is too early to tell whether Manchester City could make a concrete attempt to sign Mike Maignan from AC Milan this summer.

It was reported yesterday by The Sun that Milan have an interest in signing goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale from Arsenal subject to the possibility of Maignan being sold ahead of the 2024-25 season amid uncertainties over a potential contract renewal.

They added that Manchester City are said to be interested in the Frenchman should Ederson depart, and the Brazilian has interest from Saudi Arabia where the clubs have very deep pockets.

Speaking in his latest Daily Briefing column for CaughtOffside, Romano addressed the rumours suggesting that Maignan is a target for Manchester City.

“As I recently revealed, there are chances for Ederson to leave Manchester City this summer, so it’s normal to now see goalkeepers being linked with the Premier League champions,” he said.

“However, despite links with AC Milan’s Mike Maignan, I have no info yet on a new Manchester City goalkeeper, also because it will depend on what Ederson wants to do.

“At the moment it’s too early to say. Many goalkeepers will be linked with Man City now, but I don’t have anything confirmed yet.”

Thus, it seems as though a potential move for Maignan hinges on whether or not Ederson leaves and then the list of potential replacements that City draw up.

  1. this management RED BIRD are absolutely terrible at what they do.
    all they do is sell our stars and still expect fans to be happy. they spend 100 million and pay at most 20 million for a single player. we were linked with arsenals aaron ramsdale. now im not saying those reports are true but it is not outside the capability of REDBIRD to appoint someone of that level to compete in a role with the quality of magic mike.

    they have already shown us what they do by sacking pioli for a worse coach then him. this management are a joke i cant wait till they fail and they sell this club to someone even decent. even jut a decent owner is better then having these bankers running us into another banter era

      1. tonali was a very valuable player for milan, pioli and was a fan favorite for the majority. also a big reason Milan reached the semi final of a champions league hence why he was sold for a considerable amount £50 million.

        all they do is sell stars and they are doing so again this window and will continue to do so until we are competently made up of fodder.

        do you keep up with Milan at all or are you just commenting like a fool without knowing anything about the management and there intentions

        1. Provide another example of Milan “always selling stars” other than Tonali. I am quite indifferent about the ownership and management but honestly, it appears this site is just full of children making statements and acting like opinion is truth.

          1. You’re absolutely right. And selling a player like Mike, who is constantly injured, doesn’t hurt us in the slightest. Besides Tonali, not another big name has been sold in years

          2. mate they are selling someone this season ita being reported everywhere. its not even a question of who anymore, its more of when.

            theo has been linked out, tomori, leao, magic mike, on top of all that the management said everyone is for sale for the right price. i shouldn’t have to wait till someone is sold for me to say i told you so. even the most casual fan can see the pattern of the management.

            maybe you dont care about the football team to the extent where your satisfied with all the decisions this management makes but some of us care that we have been regressing ever since this management have step foot in milan.

            a cry baby? your a careless casual. if you have have no knowledge on whats going on dont come to people that do and tell them why do you care so much

    1. Dude you believe rumour too easily. I suggest you stop read transfer market rumour. Selling tonali are right , he is addicted with gambling and have high risk get banned. Lucas paqueta facing 10 years banned due to involved directly in gambling, dont underestimate gambling now .
