Manchester United allowed David De Gea to leave for free in the summer even after the Spaniard won the Premier League Golden Glove award.
The Red Devils opted to splash the cash to sign Andre Onana from Inter Milan but the Cameroonian international has been highly inconsistent this term.
The African shot stopper was the preferred choice of manager, Erik ten Hag, who has been found shaking head on his goalie’s numerous blunders.
In such a scenario, reports indicate that Man Utd are interested in signing French international and AC Milan star Mike Maignan.
According to Foot Mercato, the Rossoneri have been negotiating a new deal with the 28-year-old for over six months but have not managed to reach an agreement.
In such a scenario, top European clubs are ‘ready to offer themselves’ and exploit the ongoing impasse by signing the former Lille man and Man Utd are one of them.
The French news outlet have mentioned that Erik ten Hag is not convinced by the performances of Onana and really admires the profile of Maignan.
The 13-capped star is the No.1 goalie for France since Lloris retired from international football after the FIFA World Cup last year. He will likely be the main man in goal at the European championships next year.
He was a key member of the AC Milan side that won the Scudetto in 2021-22 but had an injury hit campaign last term.
Maignan’s current contract with the Italian giants will expire in 2026 and as per FM, he is valued at around £60.1million (70 million euros).
Man Utd paid around £47million to sign Onana from the Nerazzurri in the summer. Should they now splash £60.1million to sign Mike Maignan?
