With rumours that Milan’s Stephan El Shaarawy could be heading for a new club Silvio Berlusconi (sure I have heard that name before) has said that the player won’t go cheaply.
Berlusconi is saying that the player should have a price tag of 35 million Euros, a fee that first emerged in Tuttosport and has reverberating around the Italian press today.
There’s an implication too that Milan wouldn’t want to sell the player to another Serie A club which would rule out the likes of Napoli who may soon be looking to replace the irrepressible Edinson Cavani.
Meanwhile the player’s agent has put the dampeners on any move to Man City.
Roberto La Florio told SportItalia (reported here).
“Although we can say that the market is a bit crazy and anything can happen, that is indisputable. The boy is doing well at Milan and for us nothing has changed.
“Offers from City? Nobody has called me regarding this. He is Milan through and through and looks great with the Rossoneri.”
