CRASH COURSE

Catch all the movers and shakers from this summer's transfer window.

AC Milan forward Stephan El Shaarawy has brushed off links with Manchester City by insisting he wants to stay at the San Siro.

Reports in Italy had claimed that City were lining up a £30million bid for the 20-year-old Italy international.

However, El Shaarawy insists that he cannot see himself leaving Milan this summer - even though he is "flattered" at City's reported interest.

"I don't think I will leave Milan," he told La Repubblica

"If City really wants me, it flatters me. But I want to stay here at AC Milan.

"I always felt total confidence from all: the club, coach [Massimiliano] Allegri and team-mates.

"It's also thanks to them that I am in the Italian national team."

El Sharaawy added: "Look, I feel like everyone at Milan has confidence in me. The club does, (head coach Massimiliano) Allegri, who let me loose and encouraged me, does and so do my team-mates.

"Even when I've not managed to score goals they've appreciated my hard work. I'm also in the national team and I owe that to them.''
