The goalkeeper’s injury is set to be assessed which will decide his participation for Euro

According to L’Équipe, Mike Maignan, 28, suffered a finger injury during AC Milan’s morning training. He will have tests done to ascertain the extent of the ailment before the summer Euros.

Due to a string of injuries, the France goalkeeper has struggled this season and has missed games for both his club and his nation. After missing the first four games of the season due to an abductor injury, his most recent setback means he will probably miss the last Milan game.

This will continue to be a worry for the French team because, in spite of his recent struggles, Maignan is still Didier Deschamps’ first pick for the starting position. Before they must decide who will be included in the squad on June 7th, they will be closely monitoring the outcomes of his tests.

Due to a muscular issue, the 28-year-old French goalkeeper has only made one appearance for the Rossoneri in their past six Serie A games. He had to be replaced by backup custodian Marco Sportiello, who filled the role admirably.

Since moving to Milan from Lille in July 2021, Maignan has remained an essential member of the team, and he has kept 15 clean sheets in 42 games this season.

The setback will only exacerbate some of the frustration around Maignan and his considerable injury history this season for a goalie. It’s not out of the question that he has played his final game for the team given the transfer rumours about him.

Chelsea looking to sign Mike Maignan

In the summer transfer window, Chelsea are eager to strengthen the goalkeeping position, and they have their sights set on Mike Maignan of AC Milan. The Blues believe the 28-year-old French international, who is among the best shot-stoppers in the world, could be essential for them.

Even though Maignan’s time at PSG may not have gone as planned, he was able to turn things around at LOSC Lille. In the summer of 2021, AC Milan signed him as a result of his outstanding achievements. While he’s been with the Italian team, the French stopper has improved greatly.
