Stephan El Shaarawy: Planning on staying with AC Milan

Reports in Italy had claimed that City were lining up a £30million bid for the 20-year-old international.

However, El Shaarawy insists that he cannot see himself leaving Milan this summer - even though he is 'flattered' at City's reported interest.

"I don't think I will leave Milan," he told La Repubblica

"If City really wants me, it flatters me. But I want to stay here at AC Milan.

"I always felt total confidence from all: the club, coach [Massimiliano] Allegri and team-mates.

"Even when I've not managed to score goals they've appreciated my hard work. I'm also in the national team and I owe that to them."
