Manchester City target Stephan El Shaarawy wants to stay at AC Milan for life
AC Milan news: Stephan El Shaarawy will remain at San Siro, despite Manchester City interest
Stephan El Shaarawy has declared he sees his future in Milan, despite speculation that Manchester City are to bid for the forward during the close season.
The 20-year-old has struck 16 Serie ‘A’ goals this campaign – and is the division’s third top scorer – but insists he is very content with life at the club.
He told La Gazzetta dello Sport: “I am feeling very good at Milan and I hope to stay here for the rest of my life.”
CEO Adriano Galliani recently declared that the young striker was not available at any price, in an attempt to warn off interested parties.
El Shaarawy said: “I heard what Galliani said about me and it pleases me that the club do not want to sell me.”
But despite the ex-Genoa forward’s growing reputation, Italian international El Shaarawy has not scored since notching against city rivals Inter in February.
“I was disappointed on Sunday after the match [against Catania] as I had some good chances, but didn’t score,” he reflected.
“Obviously I miss the feeling of finding the net. I’m an attacker and forwards always want to score.”
The Rossoneri host Torino on Sunday and look to put some distance between themselves and fourth-placed Fiorentina, in order to secure a Champions League spot for next season.
