AC Milan are set to extend the French goalkeeper’s contract. The Lombardy club is also said to have agreed a salary increase.
The 28-year-old French goalkeeper has been one of the club’s best players since arriving from Lille in the summer of 2021, playing a crucial role in their Scudetto success. One of the main reasons for their downfall last season was his mid-season calf injury, which kept him sidelined for months. Maignan has continued to be one of AC Milan’s best players this season, even after the team’s form dipped after the October international break. His current contract runs until June 2026. As Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com reports, AC Milan contacted Maignan’s entourage last month to understand his intentions before entering into contract negotiations. Rossoneri duo Geoffrey Moncada and Giorgio Furlani are keen to reward Maignan with a new long-term contract, doubling his current net salary of €2.8 million per season. Discussions will continue until February, when the two parties will sit down in earnest to work out the details of a deal.
