Serie A club have not ruled out the sale of young striker Stephan El Shaarawy this summer.

Manchester City have been boosted in their attempts to sign AC Milan’s Stephan El Shaarawy, after the Italian club refused to rule out selling the striker.

The 20-year old has been linked with a move to Eastlands this summer, and the Premier League club will be expected to pay Milan in the region of £34m for the striker, a fee that should not trouble City financially.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani told reporters that interest in the Italy international is high and that he was unable to rule out a move at this time.

“El Shaarawy is the most sought-after player on the market but I have not yet received any proposal,” he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“But I cannot rule out he could be sold, because in this market everything can happen.”

The potential bid from City may also include the possible swap of striker Carlos Tevez, who the Premier League runners up could use as a makeweight in order to sign the talented forward, nicknamed the Pharaoh.

Despite Galliani has said that a potential sale is possible, El Shaarawy’s agent has said otherwise, claiming he has not been in contact with any clubs regarding the player.

“The player is fine and he hopes to stay at Milan,” he said.

“Offers from City? Nobody called me.”
