FOUR AC Milan stars, including Chelsea target Mike Maignan, could be eyeing a move amid the turmoil off the pitch.
Some veteran players are reportedly unhappy with the sacking of directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara.
Goalkeeper Maignan and his France team-mate, left-back Theo Hernandez are reportedly contemplating their future.
Portuguese striker Rafael Leao – although he has just signed a new long-term deal – and Italian presenter Sandro Tonali were also mentioned.
But it’s Maignan’s situation that could excite Chelsea.
The boss of the New Blues, Mauricio Pochettino, apparently wants a new number 1.
Inter Milan’s Andre Onana, followed by Brentford star David Raya, are said to be higher up the list than Maignan.
But the 27-year-old, who has seven caps in France, could be an easier player to bring in.
The Milan saga begins right as legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic retires.
The 41-year-old Swedish forward has won Serie A three times with Inter and twice each with Juventus and Milan, while also taking silver with Ajax, Barcelona, PSG and Manchester United.

La Republica Name Maignan and Hernandez as possible exits.
And Italian journalist Daniele Longo suggests Tonali could be someone else.
But Leao is perhaps the biggest surprise.
Last month, Chelsea reportedly offered both Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic in their pursuit of the 23-year-old.
But it’s been claimed that the Italian giants want almost £130m for the former Lille and Sporting Lisbon hero.
