El Shaarawy signs Milan extension

By Football News



AC Milan striker Stephan El Shaarawy has extended his contract at the club until June 2018.

The 20-year-old has been the stand-out player for the Rossoneri this season, notching 18 goals and four assists in all competitions.

His electric form saw him linked with the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City, but Milan have now confirmed the re-signing.

El Shaarawy joined the San Siro side in the middle of 2011 from fellow Serie A outfit Genoa.

He has been crucial to Milan's efforts to rebuild the squad following wholesale changes in close season, helping propel the side back into contention for a top-three finish.
