MilanÔÇÖs Stephan El┬áShaarawy┬áhas reportedly turned down an offer to return to his former club Genoa.
He grew up in the┬áGrifone┬áyouth academy and shot to fame while on loan atPadova┬áin┬áSerie┬áB before earning a move to San┬áSiro.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Genoa President┬áEnrico┬áPreziosi┬áoffered to bring the forward back to┬áMarassi┬áon loan in January.
This would give him more playing time and the chance to be closer to home, as his family is from┬áSavona, near Genoa.
However, the same report claims El┬áShaarawy┬áturned down the opportunity, as he wants to stay and fight for his place at Milan.
