Here is why Chelsea fans shouldn’t rule out Maignan transfer yet; This could be one of the major signing they will makle this Summer
As far as we can tell, we approached AC Milan at the start of the summer and they gave us an asking price so massive that we backed off. But transfer insider Dean Jones of Givemesport isn’t convinced that the story is over yet.
“Another situation I am expecting to become interesting and more urgent is on the goalkeeper scene.
“Let’s see how Kepa Arrizabalaga does in these first days of Pochettino but I would say quite a few people around Cobham are still not wholly convinced that he is the long-term number-one under the new boss.
“The links with Mike Maignan are back and there have definitely been conversations around that potential move so I would not lose sight of that.”
It still seems unlikely that he ends up with us, certainly this summer, but if we don’t end up signing another goalkeeper this summer we can well imagine that we will be first in the queue again next year when we’re hopefully back in Europe and Maignan is a year closer to the end of his contract.
A lot will depend on how we do and how Milan do this season – but keep an eye on it, as Jones says.
