AC Milan snap up Lille goalkeeper Maignan

French international goalkeeper Mike Maignan has signed a five-year contract with AC Milan, the Serie A club announced on Thursday, reports AFP. The 25-year-old, who is the third-choice goalkeeper for the French national team, will have the tough task of succeeding Italian first choice Gianluigi Donnarumma whose departure was made official on Wednesday. Maignan helped Lille win the French league title on Sunday while AC Milan finished second in Serie A, 12 points behind their neighbours Inter. He “will be joining the club starting from July 1, 2021. The goalkeeper has signed a contract with the Rossoneri until June 30, 2026, and will wear the number 16 jersey," said AC Milan on their website.
