El Shaarawy not for sale – agent

The agent of Stephan El Shaarawy insists that Milan have no intention of selling his client this summer, despite the latest statements of Adriano Galliani.

The Rossoneri official last night ignited transfer speculation about the youngster when he admitted a sale was not impossible.

“I haven’t heard the words of Galliani,” Roberto La Florio told Sport Italia. “I’m going with what he said a few days ago when he stated that the player was not available for transfer.

“Speaking generally though, we can say that the transfer market is crazy and anything can happen. But the boy is happy at Milan and nothing has changed.”

Reports suggest that Manchester City are interested in the Italian international, a club who could offer Milan Carlos Tevez as part of any deal.

“I’ve not been called by City, these are just rumours. The player is a Milanista and he’s happy in Rossonero,” the representative continued.

“Mario Balotelli and El Shaarawy are the only two players that Milan have who are not on the market.

“Even though money rules in the window, Milan’s desire is to keep him and Stephan’s desire is to stay.

“The interest in Tevez? It’s only right that the club look to reinforce the team. Milan are a great team and they are doing their job by targeting great players.”

Reports suggest that Napoli could also make a bid for the former Genoa man seeing as they tried and failed to sign him in January.
