Milan Unbothered by Bayern Munich Interest in Maignan

Mike Maignan is reportedly on Bayern Munich’s radar and previously drew an offer from Chelsea, but Milan don’t intend to lose more top players after Sandro Tonali. Instead, they are set to open talks to extend his contract, which currently expires in 2026.

Per TuttoSport, the goalkeeper has been deemed untouchable by the Rossoneri brass. The Blues had put €60M on the table. At the time, the Rossoneri could have perhaps considered his departure, but only for €80/10M.

Milan don’t expect the Bavarians to bid that much for Maignan even should their interest turn into a concrete pursuit. Once the window is over, they’ll start haggling with his entourage.

The shot-stopper came in with relatively low wages, as he earns €2.8M per year. He’ll get a substantial pay hike, likely up to €5M annually, once the negotiation is complete. He’ll earn as much as their other stars besides Rafael Leao, who stands above everybody else following his challenging renewal.

Our Take on Milan and Maignan

The Rossoneri selling a centerpiece to bankroll multiple additions might become a regular thing in the future, but it’s too late for that to be a real threat again at this stage. Even if he doubled his wages, the Frenchman would still be a bargain considering the fee and his level of performance. Only injuries have slowed him down.
