El Shaarawy to Man City for €40m?

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Milan are considering a €40m Manchester City offer for Stephan El Shaarawy, while Chelsea want Kevin-Prince Boateng.

The front page of Italy’s famous pink sports paper suggests the Rossoneri would be prepared to part with their 20-year-old forward.

Until now the club has turned down several bids for ‘The Little Pharaoh,’ who cost them approximately €15.5m to sign from Genoa.

He was Serie A top scorer during the first half of the season, then hit a dry patch once Mario Balotelli arrived, but still managing 16 goals in 37 games.

El Shaarawy had also been linked with Arsenal and Manchester United, but La Gazzetta dello Sport maintains Milan are finally prepared to release him for €40m - £34m.

He isn’t the only player reportedly heading to the Premier League, as there are also claims Jose Mourinho wants Boateng at Chelsea.

Robinho is waiting for offers from Brazil, while 36-year-old captain Massimo Ambrosini is increasingly likely to join West Ham United for the twilight years of his career.
