AC Milan legend Zvonimir Boban believes Stephan El Shaarawy's development has stalled.

The striker has been linked with Chelsea and Manchester City this summer.

"Everything that has happened to him has happened too soon, El Shaarawy must improve before things become too predictable, everyone knows his movement now when he comes in central," explained Boban to Sky Sports 24.

"In my opinion there is not full respect in Milan for him, not as a player or a man, but as a champion - I believe he is a very good player, but nothing more.

"Could Milan think of selling him? It seems to me that they are already considering this, Galliani has said that he is not unsellable if a great offer comes in.

"I think they could also drop the price, if not I cannot explain given his age."
