Monaco have signed former AC Milan wonderkid Stephan El Shaarawy on a season long loan and the French side have the first option to buy the Italian at the end of the season.
El Shaarawy was tipped for greatness when he broke into the AC Milan first team three years ago but a series of injury have hampered his progress and reduced his influence and his struggles have been epitomized by AC Milan’s decline in recent years. The 22 year old is looking to revive his career as he moves to France for at least one season. Monaco would be happy to add Stephan El Shaarawy to their team as his pace, skill and eye for goal could be the spark that ignites a genuine title challenge for the French side this season.

Monaco’s president has tipped El Shaarawy for success at the club and the next 12 mnths would be very defining in the 22 year old’s career.
