Man Utd target El Shaarawy rejected by Juventus as "too small"

Manchester United target Stephan El Shaarawy is a Juventus reject!

United are expected to bid for the AC Milan attacker in January after the youngster's impressive opening weeks of the season.

His junior coach, Dionigi Donati, revealed to TMW: "He was phenomenal, in a year he scored 132 goals. At the age of six years of age he'd win games by himself. In 32 years as a coach I've never seen someone like that.

"The biggest clubs wanted him, but my dream was for him to play for Juventus. I called them about him. However, they rejected him, saying he was too small."
