Brother cools Napoli talk for AC Milan striker El Shaarawy
The brother of Stephen El Shaarawy insists AC Milan want to keep hold of the striker. The 21-year-old has been out since the start of the season after suffering a metatarsal fracture, playing just four League games all term.
"I've heard rumours that [Napoli President Aurelio] De Laurentiis wants my brother," Manuel El Shaarawy told Radio Crc.
"And of course, those sort of stories don't make anyone happy.
"As far as I'm aware, Milan don't want Stephan to leave, whether it's on loan or not.
"It's been a tough season for Stephan, but unfortunately accidents like this happen all the time to professionals.
"I doubt he'll be fit for the World Cup, so now he's training and hopes to be able to get in with the first team before the end of the season."
