Inter and Barcelona were amongst the clubs interested in Stephan El Shaarawy before Milan swooped.

The youngster was netted by the Rossoneri in the summer of 2011 on a co-ownership from Genoa after his revelatory campaign in Serie B with Padova.

A year later and he was signed outright from the Stadio Marassi outfit despite only contributing two Serie A goals for the Diavolo.

“There were a lot of sides chasing him,” Roberto La Florio told GR Parlamento on Monday afternoon.

“Inter wanted him, a number of English clubs and, if I remember correctly, Barcelona too. But Milan quickly made a raid for him –  they moved better than anyone else.”

El Shaarawy, now 20, is a full Italian international after netting 16 goals in 26 League games so far this season.
