AC Milan Want To Bring Back Former Striker
Written By Jacobs Dunga
The Rossoneri have been alerted to the availability of the Italian forward.
AC Milan could possibly re-sign former striker Stephan El Shaarawy at the end of the season.
The 30 years old becomes a free agent when his Roma contract expires at the end of June.
Il Mesaaggero reports that the Rossoneri are talking about bringing the Italian international who spent five years at the club between 2011 and 2016 back to the San Siro.
Stefano Pioli’s side is looking at a lot of attackers for possible attacking recruitment and the name of El Shaarawy has popped up as one of them.
The Savona born player has been at the capital club since 2021 and will leave next month when his contract expires.
His experience will come handy for Milan and also at a cost effective considering the financial situation at the club.
AC Milan legend Alessandro Nesta has heaped praises on Portuguese forward Rafael Leao.
He said the left winger is the face of the team and is obvious why their results improve when he is playing compared to when he is not available.

Speaking to DAZN as relayed by PianetaMilan, Nesta touched on several topics including the return of Italian football.
“Leao is the face of Milan, the facts say that with him Milan is different. And then Tonali: for me he is one of those players around whom you can build an important team.
“He can become the necessary hard core in the big teams, as we have been and as you have been: the others changed every year, but the group with some symbolic players remains.”
On the success of Italian teams on the continent, he acknowledged that Calcio is getting back to what it used to be.
“Italian football is making a comeback for me, but at that time all the champions were in Italy, every Sunday was tough.”
