After being in the middle of the transfer rumor storm during the entire month of January, Stephan El Shaarawy should be headed to AS Roma on loan in order to reinforce their attack.

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio, the deal includes a €2 million fee that will be paid as soon as the 23-year-old winger sign the contract and a 13 million clause in case they decide to buy him at the end of the season. The deal is even more favorable to AC Milan than expected a couple of days ago, when the media talked about a free loan with a 11 million clause, so, at the end of those long negotiations, the rossoneri could earn almost the same amount of money they would have made with the Monaco deal.

They still haven't set the date of the medicals and it could take some time before Il Faraone pens the new contract since Milan will wait until everything is done before recalling him from France in order to avoid another Luiz Adriano-like situation.
