El Shaarawy wants Milan for life

Stephan El Shaarawy has committed his career to Milan just a matter of months after arriving from Genoa.

The youngster, who will turn 19 on October 27, joined the Rossoneri in the summer on a co-ownership deal.

"If I have to be honest, I want to stay at Milan forever rather than one day playing my football abroad," he told Leggo.

"At the end of the day I have always had a weakness for Milan, ever since I was a little boy," added the Italian Under-19 international.

The attacking midfielder, who has an Italian mother and an Egyptian father, has been used sparingly so far by boss Massimiliano Allegri.

"I want to convince Allegri that I am a first team player," he added. "I hope to play and score as much as possible, that is my objective.

"I want this Milan chance. Even if I don't play that often, at least I will still have the opportunity to train with champions."

El Shaarawy made his debut in the 3-1 loss at Napoli, before scoring in the 1-1 with Udinese three days later.
