SM: El Shaarawy’s return a concrete hypothesis – the obstacle to overcome

By Oliver Fisher -

The idea of a potential return to AC Milan for Stephan El Shaarawy has been floated in recent days, and we have learned that it is indeed a concrete possibility.

As our colleagues at report, El Shaarawy’s contract with Roma will expire on June 30 and he will be free to choose another club if he does not agree a new deal with them before that date.

It was back in 2011 when the Rossoneri signed the winger from Genoa for €20.3m and then he left on loan in 2015 to Monaco and then was sold to Roma for €13m a year late.

Now ‘Il Faraone’ could make a return to Milan as the deputy to Rafael Leao. A quality reserve like El Shaarawy would be a great upgrade for the Milan bench who, especially during the derby, showed a huge gap compared to their city rivals.

The information we have is that his salary could be an obstacle. El Shaarawy earns €3.5m net per season at Roma, which the Rossoneri consider too much for a player who will not be a start.

However, there is the possibility that not having to pay a transfer fee could push Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara to accept the requests of his agents, which is at present for him to earn the same at his next club.

  1. If he could lower 3 mil I am good with that. He offers speed, and quality which we do lack as an option. He is also versatile which pioli needs. I get He never hit the quality we all expected.

  2. Good asset but 3.5 for a deputy is a lot. I think we need to be reasonable financially. If he wants to come, it shouldn’t be a problem. Either way, a deputy to Leao has to deliver. we can add bonuses based on performance if that helps.

    1. Compare that to what Origi has given us and I don’t think there’s anyone who’d object to letting Origi go and getting SES instead (even if not 1:1 type of player, but the salaries are similar).

  3. Ask Poli if he wants this lad. Mistakes like Adil must not happen again. So angry with Poli for wasting 1 year of Adil career seating on the bench

  4. Hey don’t you remember that you paid 6m/year for Dest, 5m/year for Origi, and 4m/year for Bakayoko. Come on, 3,5m/year seems reasonable wage if you offload that last 3 players

    1. Where is this figures coming from? 🤣🤣🤣
      All your figures are totally wrong man, do your checks well please.
