Chelsea have eyes on the prize.
Foot Mercato reports that Mike Maignan has communicated to Chelsea his lack of interest in a transfer to Stamford Bridge this summer. Despite his discontent at AC Milan. Now, let’s delve into the latest updates regarding Mike Maignan and Chelsea.
Firstly, Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Paris Saint-Germain, is reportedly interested in securing a new goalkeeper this summer. The two main targets on his radar are Andre Onana from Inter Milan and Mike Maignan from AC Milan, both representing Italy’s prominent clubs. At Chelsea, the hierarchy has also included Onana and Maignan on their shortlist. Among the two, Maignan, who has been lauded as a “great leader”. Seems to be the preferred choice for Chelsea.
Secondly, Foot Mercato has revealed that the absence of European football at Chelsea next season has dissuaded Mike Maignan from joining the club. Despite his dissatisfaction with the dismissal of Paolo Maldini at AC Milan. Maignan has now officially rejected Chelsea’s contract offer. This development could potentially accelerate efforts to secure Andre Onana’s services for Chelsea.
Chelsea want this to happen?
According to journalist Gian Luca Rossi, he had a conversation with Jordi Pascual. The Communications Manager for Cameroon international Onana, who informed him that Chelsea is set to make a £52 million bid for the Inter Milan goalkeeper in the coming week.
Moreover, according to Gian Luca Rossi in an interview with Calciomercato. He revealed that he had a discussion with Jordi Pascual. Who indicated that Blues are preparing to present a €60 million (£52 million) offer for Andre Onana within a week. If this information is accurate, Rossi suggests that Onana’s most recent match could be his final one for Inter Milan.
Above all, Onana himself has expressed his openness to a transfer if it aligns with Inter Milan’s decision to alleviate their financial situation by considering a sale.
However, as this situation unfolds, it is advisable to closely monitor the developments. As it appears that Chelsea is drawing nearer to securing a new goalkeeper.
