Stephan El Shaarawy is settled at Milan after he insisted he would snub offers from “any team” in favour of staying at San Siro.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani revealed last month that the 20-year-old attacker rejected a “huge offer” to remain with the Serie A club amid reported speculation of interest from the likes of Chelsea.

And El Shaarawy, who scored 19 goals in 46 appearances in all competitions, is happy with the decision he made and reiterated his commitment to Milan, who he supported as a child growing up.

He told Tuttosport: “I’ve always been convinced of my decisions, so I never thought about changing team.

“I have been a Milan fan since childhood, so being here is a dream come true.

“I would never have left, not even faced with an offer from Real Madrid. I’d have said no to any team.

“It’s also true that concrete requests from the so-called ‘big’ clubs never really developed. I want to be here for a long time and write Milan history.”

Italy international El Shaarawy moved to Milan from Genoa in June 2011.
