Italy Transfer News — 06 October 2012

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has revealed that his club have no interest in selling starlet Stephan El Shaarawy.

The youngster has been one of Milan’s top performers this season, scoring four goals for his side in the Italian top flight.


The 19 year-olds performances have caught the attention of Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson. Galliani told the media: “Let’s hope Ferguson will stay in love with him, but it’s not in our thoughts to sell him,”

“I’d like to give peace of mind to supporters, considering we have recently renewed his deal until 2017.”

He also told “I have had no contact with the United. The player has been secured by AC Milan and he is happy to play for them. He has always dreamed it.

“He has to keep both feet on the ground, thinking about this club which trusted in him, and that he’s paying off with these performances.”


AC Milan has parted with some big players this summer with the likes of Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic leaving Milan for French giants PSG. AC Milan are still in major debt and could cash in on the youngster if they want to improve their financial situation.


There is no doubt that the youngster is talented and would have been unthinkable for the youngster to leave the club a few years ago. However they may be forced to sell El Shaarawy. At 19 years of age he is one of the most promising young players in the Italian game.

The attacking midfielder could be a very good signing for Premier League clubs. Manchester United has had an obvious problem in midfield for a while and the youngster could be an ideal solution. However, it doesn’t look like he will be the solution anytime in the near future though, as AC Milan look determined to hold on to their top asset for a while longer.

Could AC Milan youngster be heading for Old Trafford?
