STEPHAN EL SHAARAWY will undergo a series of tests on Saturday.
The half-Italian half-Egyptian fantasista will complete his switch to AC Milan very soon as he has medical check-ups scheduled for Saturday, Sky Sport 24 reports on Tuesday. Then, he’s expected to sign a contract.
El Shaarawy impressed many clubs with his excellent performances on loan from Genoa with Serie B side Padova – but as stated by his agent “Milan have beaten them all”. He will join Milan on a co-ownership deal.
An agreement between Milan and Genoa over the player, who turns 19 only in October, was reached already last week but the player had no time to undergo the medicals as he’s very busy with his final exams.
Meanwhile German midfielder Alexander Merkel had his medical check-ups with Genoa yesterday. He joins them on co-ownership as he hopes to improve and grow and return to Milan “stronger than before.”
