AC Milan winger Stephan El Shaarawy has rejected reports he could leave the San Siro to join Manchester City.

The 20-year-old's future was put into question as manager Massimiliano Allegri has signed forwards Alessandro Matri from Juventus and Kaka from Real Madrid over the last four days.

"I've decided to stay at Milan," he told Sport Mediaset as he arrived in Florence to join the Italian national squad.

"I have made a precise decision and, no matter what offer arrives, I want to stay at Milan.

"There's more competition in the squad now, but there will be playing time for everybody. I'll fight for my place in the team."
