You’re offside, as often.Actually Maignan was voted Ligue 1's GK of the year in 2018/19 and won the league in 2020/21 so was a highly rated talent before we signed him.
Sure he was great, Won the league, and won ligue 1 GK of the year (TOS with 3 of his teammates), known as a talent.
He still had 1 year left on his contract, and had nowhere near the notoriety he now has, that would make him a super wanted keeper thus also more expensive. also competition, which would drive up the price was not there, as most top team that would look at him were set.
and even performance wise, we all went to youtube to "scout" him when we signed him out of the blue ... to see what we were getting ... his lille higlight swere very good but nowhere near what his Milan highlights are...faaaaar apart.
he took another step up here, a huge one... and that's where the confusion come in, trying to price him based on what he is today.
