The Italian U-21 star has extended Milan stay…
Milan have announced that forward Stephan El Shaarawy has signed a new five-year contract with the club.
The Italy Under-21 international arrived at San Siro just over 12 months ago as part of a co-ownership agreement with Genoa but the Rossoneri have since bought the player outright. Following the departure of star forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic for Paris Saint-Germain, Milan have moved to tie El Shaarawy down to a new deal.
“Milan announce that they have extended the contract of Stephan El Shaarawy until 30 June 2017,” a statement on the club’s official website read.
The 19-year-old striker, who was born in Savona to an Egyptian father and Italian mother, scored two goals in 22 Serie A appearances last term.
