El Shaarawy to miss Parma

Stephan El Shaarawy is likely to miss Friday’s Serie A game with Parma so the Milan man can recover in time to face Barcelona.

The Week 25 match is brought forward to Friday evening so that the Rossoneri can have more time to prepare for their Champions League Round of 16 tie.

El Shaarawy did not take part in a full training session today and is unlikely to be risked.

Mario Balotelli should start, as he is cup-tied and cannot play against Barcelona next week.

Giampaolo Pazzini and Kevin Constant have returned to full training and are available for selection.
