But Italians still want Tevez.
AC Milan president Adriano Galliani has insisted that young striker Stephan El Shaarawy will remain with the club next season, but still hopes that Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez will still head in the opposite direction, Sky Sports reports.
The young Italian had been linked with a switch to the Eithad this summer with the troubled Argentine heading the other way but Galliani has been quick to wave away the speculation by claiming that he still expects 20-year-old to remain at the San Siro.
Former Spurs and Portsmouth midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng has also been tipped to leave the Rossoneri this summer with Chelsea earmarked as a potential destination, however, Galliani believes that neither man will move on over the coming weeks.
“Stephan does not move from AC Milan and we have no offers for Boateng,” Galliani told Italian news source Mediaset.
But he still hopes that Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez will make the switch in the opposite direction and feels that Milan are still in pole position to land his signature despite recent links with Serie A rivals Juventus.
“Tevez is not cheating on me,” he added.
El Shaarawy has bagged 19 goals in 40 games for Milan this season and has struck up an effective partnership with another City old boy, Mario Balotelli.
