AC Milan career
At the start of the 2015–16 season, Jose Mauri joined Milan on a four-year deal on a free transfer. However, Milan also paid €4 million to unknown parties. Mauri made his first full debut on 1 December, playing 99 minutes of a Coppa Italia game against Crotone, with Milan winning 3–1 after extra time. He made his Serie A debut for Milan against Chievo Verona on 13 March 2016, playing the last five minutes of the 0–0 away draw.
In the season 2018/19 Jose Mauri did not received many chances by Gennaro Gattuso. Even though that is the case Jose stated that he is happy in AC Milan, and he would like to extend his contract. However the management is not ready to offer him new contract. It is expected that after the season ends, Jose will leave AC Milan.
After the season 2018/2019 ended Jose Mauri left AC Milan as his contract with the Italian team expired. The player is currently without a club.
As one of his grandmothers was Italian, Mauri is eligible for both Argentina and Italy. Despite playing for Italy’s youth international squads, Mauri declined a call-up to the Italian U20 squad, declaring his desire to represent solely Argentina in international competition.
Mauri made his debut for Parma as a substitute on 3 December 2013 in the fourth round of the Coppa Italia, replacing Gianni Munari for the last 27 minutes of a 4–1 home win against A.S. Varese 1910 at the Stadio Ennio Tardini.
On 11 April 2015, he scored the only goal in a 1–0 win against Juventus, with his team in last position and the opponents leading the league. Jose Mauri described it as “the happiest day of my life”.
On 30 August 2016, he was loaned out to Serie A club Empoli for the season.
