Galliani also states that there are no negotiations for Tevez.
Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has admitted that Manchester City target Stephan El Shaarawy is “not off the market”, as reported by football-italia.net.
Speculation has emerged over the past week that the Premier League outfit are interested in the 20-year-old, with rumours suggesting that a bid of €40m was made, while a €25m plus Carlos Tevez bid has also been touted.
Initially, Milan were quick to dismiss the reports of El Shaarawy being available for transfer, but Galliani has since performed a U-turn and admitted that anything can happen in the transfer market.
“The player we received the most requests for is El Shaarawy. I never said he was off the market, because anything can happen during the transfer sessions.”
It is not a reassuring statement for Milan fans, who have seen several cuts made to the squad over the last two seasons, but will be against selling one of their most promising youngsters.
El Shaarawy ended the season as top scorer after a break-out year at San Siro, but struggled badly in the second half of the campaign following the arrival of Mario Balotelli.
Critics have pointed to an apparent incompatibility between the duo, and Galliani will undoubtedly fuel that talk with his latest statement.
Galliani went on to rule out a move for City striker Tevez though, stating that the Rossoneri are set in attack and do not require any new additions in that particular area this summer.
Meanwhile, Kevin-Prince Boateng will definitely not be leaving the club ahead of next season, while veteran midfielder Massimo Ambrosini was released after 18 years with the club.
