Roma winger El Shaarawy admits turning down China move

Roma winger Stephan El Shaarawy has confirmed turning down a move to China.

Shanghai Shenhua reportedly offered him over €10m a season.

“I don't feel like leaving Europe," he said.

“I still want to play at the highest level. It's too early, not even at 26, to make such a drastic choice."

El Shaarawy's contract with Roma runs to 2020.
