AC Milan have insisted Stephan El Shaarawy will not leave the club and have called time on swelling 'rumours' surrounding the striker's future.
The 20-year-old has reportedly attracted interest from Man City and Chelsea in recent months after scoring 16 league goals last term.
– Statement published on acmilan.com.
There has been a meeting between (Milan vice president) Adriano Galliani, Stephan El Shaarawy and the young star's entourage.
Everything went well. Stephan has always been an AC Milan fan and has reiterated his determination to continue playing for the Rossoneri.
That pledge was reciprocated by Milan, with conviction. Milan and El Shaarawy will move forward together, as they have since 2011.
No more talk of the transfer market, no more rumours.
