El Shaarawy’s representative has denied rumors of England switch…
The 19-year-old striker joined Milan from Genoa in June 2011 and after a tentative first season with the Rossoneri, has started the 2012-13 campaign in fine style, scoring four goals in the club’s opening six Serie A fixtures.
Despite the rumours, Roberto La Florio insists that hasn’t been in contact with Premier League side and is adamant that his client is happy in Italy: ”I have had no contact with the United,” he told Tuttomercatoweb.
“The player has been secured by Milan and he is happy to play for them. He has always dreamed it. He has to keep both feet on the ground, thinking about this club which trusted in him, and that he’s paying off with these performances.”
Milan’s CEO Galliani also saw fit to comment on the rumours, insisting to the club’s supporters that they have no plans to sell the recently capped Italy international.
Speaking to Italian TV channel Sky Sport 24, Galliani said: “He’s a talented boy and he has renewed his contract recently. Manchester United for him? Ferguson can forget about him.”
We’ve heard it all before. A player doesn’t want to leave and still his departure is only a matter of time, as we have witnessed it vast of times. Now all we can do is hope this will be one of the rare exceptions and words will finally turn into acts…
