Milan Ace Goalkeeper Lands on Bayern Munich Wish List

Bayern Munich are seeking a goalie following the departure of Yann Sommer and due to Manuel Neuer’s precarious health and have Mike Maignan on their radar. The German veteran might need a few more months to recover from his leg fracture. Sven Ulreich is currently the only option in their squad.

Per Bild (via Eurosport), the Bavarians are considering the Milan star and Porto’s Diogo Costa. According to Sport1, Kepa Arrizabalaga is the most concrete option. Chelsea could let him go after signing Robert Sanchez from Brighton. Thomas Tuchel is pushing to sign the Spaniard.

The Rossoneri haven’t had contacts with Bayern Munich to discuss Maignan at this stage, Mediaset informs. Instead, they rejected a €60M bid from the Blues in previous weeks. The English side then turned their attention toward a different shot-stopper.

The 28-year-old moved to Italy from Lille in a €15.4M in 2021 and quickly established himself as one of the most reliable options between the posts in the league despite a pair of muscular injuries.

Our Take on Bayern Munich and Maignan

It’s time for the Bavarians to think long-term considering Neuer’s age and physical problems. While the Frenchman would be a great option, and Milan were pragmatic when Newcastle offered them a boatload of money for Sandro Tonali, it’s probably too late in the summer for it to happen.
