FOUR AC Milan stars including Chelsea target Mike Maignan could chase a move amid turmoil off the pitch.
Some senior players are reportedly unhappy at directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara being sacked.
Keeper Maignan and his France team-mate, left-back Theo Hernandez, are said to be pondering their future.
Portugal striker Rafael Leao – despite just signing a new long-term contract – and Italy anchorman Sandro Tonali have also been mentioned.
But it’s Maignan’s situation that might excite Chelsea.
New Blues’ boss Mauricio Pochettino is understood to want a new No1.
Inter Milan’s Andre Onana followed by Brentford star David Raya are regarded as further up the list than Maignan.
But the 27-year-old, who has won seven French caps, could be an easier player to land.
The saga at Milan comes just as legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic retires.
The Swedish hitman, 41, won Serie A three times with Inter and twice apiece with Juventus and Milan, also picking up silverware with Ajax, Barcelona, PSG and Manchester United.
La Repubblica name Maignan and Hernandez as possible departures to follow.
And Italian journalist Daniele Longo suggests Tonali could be another.
But Leao is perhaps the biggest surprise.
Last month Chelsea were said to have offered both Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic in their pursuit of the 23-year-old.
But it’s claimed the Italian giants want close to £130million for the former Lille and Sporting Lisbon hero.
