El Shaarawy set to pen long-term deal

elsharaawy.jpgIt seems things cannot get any better for AC Milan fans here at the Football Transfer Tavern after reported that one of their best young players is about to pen a new deal.

After the arrival of Mario Balotelli, AC became the most talked about club in the transfer window and managed to spend money they claimed they did not have. Cue rumours of players leaving to fund the deal and allow the club to stump up the fee for the City forward, yet brilliant news comes after the club confirm Stephan El Shaarawy is set to commit his future to the San Siro-based outfit.

The young Italian international has a brilliant partnership with new signing Balotelli as has been proven for their national side and fans will be excited at the prospect of a link up once again. Gazzetta inform us that AC Milan stated: “We will open contract talks with Milan over a new deal until 2018 in the upcoming days.” Adriano Galliani has decided that the 20-year-old needs to be tied down to the club for a longer period of time and after he netted 15 times in 22 games in the first half of the season in Serie A, no one can be surprised at that.

Do you think bright things are to come from El Shaarawy? Let us know your thoughts below.
