El Shaarawy reconsiders Shanghai Shenhua

Stephan El Shaarawy has reportedly changed his mind and is now open to a Shanghai Shenhua transfer, with Roma pocketing €20m.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the Italy international had ruled out a move to China so early into his career, but is reconsidering his options.

The 26-year-old was apparently swayed by the idea of a three-year contract worth €15m per season.

As for Roma, they would get €20m for a player whose current contract is due to expire in June 2020.

The Little Pharaoh was the Giallorossi’s top scorer in the 2018-19 season with 11 goals and seven assists in 33 competitive games.
