El Shaarawy to stay at Milan

The agent of Stephan El Shaarawy doesn't believe the "strange" transfer rumours circulating around the Milan youngster.

Stories over the past week have suggested that the 19-year-old could be sent to Fiorentina in January as part of a deal that would see Riccardo Montolivo arrive at Milanello.

"I've read the stories too, but I don't know anything about them," representative Roberto La Florio told TMW.

"However, it would be strange for Milan to let go of a player who they have recently invested so heavily on.

"I don't think that Milan will let him go just six months after his arrival. The agreed project was that he would mature and be managed at Milanello."

The attacker joined Milan from Genoa in a co-ownership deal worth €7m and which also saw Alexander Merkel move to Marassi.

He's made three Serie A appearances for Milan so far this term and scored in the 1-1 draw with Udinese.
