Milan ready to extend Maignan contract


Milan are preparing to offer Mike Maignan a contract extension, recognizing his potential as a future leader within the team. The move comes in light of recent endorsements from manager Stefano Pioli and striker Olivier Giroud, who have both highlighted Maignan’s leadership qualities.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan’s management is set to discuss a new deal with the French international, which will include an improved salary. The club is keen to secure Maignan’s future at San Siro, making it clear that his sale is not an option for the upcoming summer transfer window.

Maignan, who currently earns €3.2 million per season, joined Milan in 2021 and has yet to sign a contract extension since his arrival. The proposed deal is expected to make him one of the highest earners in the squad. Although specific figures have not been disclosed, previous reports suggest that Maignan had sought parity with Rafael Leao, Milan’s top earner, who receives €7 million annually, including add-ons.

The confidence expressed by Pioli and Giroud in Maignan’s leadership capabilities adds weight to Milan’s decision. Both figures have recently praised the goalkeeper, suggesting he could become a pivotal figure in the dressing room in the coming years.
