HUGE BLOW: Chelsea table huge unrejected bid for 28-year-old French international after frustrating talks Rossoneri directors

Chelsea may plan a new bid for Mike Maignan next summer if AC Milan fails to renew his contract.

Chelsea are interested in signing Mike Maignan next summer, according to Tutto Mercato Web, and may make a new bid for the 28-year-old French international. AC Milan has no intention of losing their crucial starter, but renewing his contract will be difficult.

Following the departure of Gianluigi Donnarumma to PSG, AC Milan made a wise investment in Mike Maignan. The 28-year-old French international has already won Serie A in his first season at San Siro and is quickly becoming one of Stefano Pioli’s most significant players.

Milan, the renewal dilemma: Mike Maignan shoots high -

During the summer window, clubs were prowling around the keeper. AC Milan may have demanded a hefty compensation in exchange, deterring many of his potential suitors. Still, some are keeping a watchful check on his position in the San Siro, hoping that a door would open to let him leave.

Chelsea remains interested in Maignan and has kept a close eye on him since the summer. The Blues were eager to improve their goalkeeping positions and were successful in doing so under a variety of conditions.

Milan has been contacted about the 28-year-old French international. But the Rossoneri simply denied their offer.
Chelsea permitted Edouard Mendy to go for Saudi Arabia while authorizing a loan deal for Kepa Arrizabalaga to Real Madrid. As a result, they signed Robert Sanchez from Brighton, and the Spaniard has since taken over as No. 1 in the team.

While Sanchez remains an unconvincing possibility, Chelsea has not lost sight of other targets, namely Maignan. AC Milan wants to renew his contract, but the financial demands from the player’s side make it difficult.

According to the article, Maignan wants a salary of €7-8 million, which would place him on pace with some of Serie A’s highest-paid players. Milan is only willing to quadruple his €3.2 million salary in order to extend his existing contract until 2026. Milan are eager to extend his deal until 2028.

As a result, Chelsea may see an opportunity next summer and outbid Milan with their cash offer for Maignan. With his attacking flair, the 28-year-old French international will undoubtedly benefit the Blues. However, the Premier League club is also interested.

PSG is also considering bringing back Maignan, who they sold to LOSC Lille a few years ago. As a result, Chelsea must provide a wonderful package to entice the Frenchman to join them, as the Ligue 1 champions will make things difficult for the Blues in this pursuit.
