INSANE DEMAND: Milan star asking whooping salary increase to renew contract

Milan has begun contract extension discussions with Mike Maignan’s support group. Although it’s not urgent because he’s committed to the team through 2026, the Rossoneri want to honor his achievements. However, La Gazzetta dello Sport warns that there will be a price to pay for that.

His agents first asked for €8–10M yearly. They want him to receive compensation on par with other top goalkeepers worldwide. After a contract renewal, Gianluigi Donnarumma is earning a little bit more than Thibaut Courtois ($7–$8M). Since joining Manchester United, André Onana has an annual salary of €5.5M.

The amount would make Maignan the Milan team’s highest-paid player. The brass concluded a protracted discussion with Recently, Rafael Leao. His salary is €5 million, but he receives escalating bonuses that will easily make him €6.5 or €7 million.

All of the Rossoneri’s talents from the previous two seasons, including Theo Hernandez, Fikayo Tomori, Ismael Bennacer, and Pierre Kalulu, had their contracts extended. After a hectic transfer window, the cost of the team has gone up. Ownership will decide whether to renew the French star’s contract.

What We Think of Milan and Maignan

Given that he is in the prime of his career and that his remuneration to far has been relatively low, the expectations are considerable but understandable. However, there is still plenty of time to reach a consensus without creating unneeded stress.
