Further solidifying his stature is his international experience, with a notable tally of 12 appearances for the revered French national team, affirming his position as a formidable presence in the realm of goalkeeping.

Yet, Chelsea’s pursuit of Maignan during the summer transfer window faced a hurdle, as AC Milan’s valuation of the talented goalkeeper was deemed excessive, prompting the Premier League giants to alter their course. Instead, they opted to secure the services of Djorde Petrovic and Robert Sanchez, fortifying their goalkeeping ranks for the ongoing season.
