These gloves were worn by Maignan during the season 2021/2022. On 27 May 2021, Maignan agreed to sign for Serie A club AC Milan on a five-year contract, effective from 1 July. He arrived for a reported fee of €15 million, as a replacement for PSG-bound Gianluigi Donnarumma. He made his debut on 23 August, a 1–0 win at Sampdoria. On 19 September in a league match against Juventus, Maignan was the victim of verbal racial abuse by a Juventus supporter; he responded by calling himself “black and proud”. The supporter was later identified and reported to police, and expelled from the Juventus Club Castagnaro fan club. On 13 October 2021, Maignan underwent surgery to his left wrist injury and he was expected to be out of action for ten weeks, but returned to the field after six weeks. He made crucial saves against Inter, to help his team win a narrow 2–1 derby on 5 February. Eight days later, he assisted Rafael Leão’s goal in a 1–0 win against Sampdoria, being the first assist made by an AC Milan goalkeeper in Serie A since Dida in 2006. Maignan was awarded the trophy for Best Goalkeeper in Serie A ahead of the last match of the season on 22 May 2022. Milan won the game 3–0 win away to Sassuolo for their first league title since 2011; it was his record 17th clean sheet of the season.
