There's been a huge rumor brewing in the headlines of Italian media outlets this week -- a possible mega-offer by the rich English club for Milan starlet Stephan El Shaarawy.
Reports from La Gazzetta Dello Sport have been indicating all week that City is preparing a cash + Carlos Tevez deal to Milan to acquire the services of Il Faraone.
It would be a surprising move from the Rossoneri, who have stated their desire to build a competitive side through youth, knowing that they can no longer compete financially with some of Europe's biggest spenders.
If the idea of unearthing youngsters like El Shaarawy is to sell them before their prime, then wouldn't Milan essentially turn into a version of Udinese?
I doubt this move would ever happen, as a revolt would ensue shortly after.
