Milan, 12 October 2021 – A new, heavy roof tile hits the Milan, already plagued by injuries at the beginning of the season (not least that of Junior Messias, stopped yesterday by an injury to the rectus femoris of the left thigh that will keep him in the pits for about twenty days). In fact, the Rossoneri also lost Mike Maignan: as announced by the via Aldo Rossi club, in fact, the extreme defender – fresh winner of the Nations League with France – will be forced to undergo arthroscopic surgery tomorrow to solve a problem in his left wrist, which has long been causing him persistent pain. The recovery times are uncertain for now but there is unofficial talk of a stop of about three weeks, which would prevent Maignan from defending the Rossoneri goalposts at least in the next two Champions League matches.
Aiming for the possible substitute
A loss that is certainly not insignificant for AC Milan, which however wasted no time and already in the afternoon got in touch with Antonio Mirante. The 38-year-old Roman goalkeeper, who left Rome at the end of June at the end of his contract, in recent days seemed one step away from signing with Spezia but then the deal fell through and now this hypothesis has arisen. The meeting between the agents of the former Juventus goalkeeper and Milan would already be underway – as reported by Milannews.it – and would be one step away from the fateful white smoke. Milan would therefore have chosen not to entrust during the absence of Maignan the door to Tătăruşanu which would therefore remain the second goalkeeper. Until the signing of Mirante, which could still arrive in the next few hours or at the latest tomorrow, every possible scenario remains open.
