"We are going our separate ways, but I can only wish him the best,” Maldini told Milan TV on Wednesday.
Milan finished second in Serie A this season, ending an eight-year wait to return to the Champions League.
Maignan, who came through the PSG youth system, joined Lille in 2015 and made 180 appearances for the French club.
He has been capped once by France, in Oct.2020, and was named in Didier Deschamps’ squad for Euro 2020 this summer.
