The forward will sign a three-year contract with Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua as he leaves the Italian Lega Serie A.
After three years playing for Italian Lega Serie A club AS Roma, forward Stephan El Shaarawy has left the Giallarossi.
The Italy international has signed a three-year contract with Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua.
But he doesn’t forget where he’s coming from, and as soon as he left Italy he wanted to thank Roma fans.
“I will always thank the Roma fans for these years we had together,” El Shaarawy was quoted by Football Italia.
“I also thank all those who I worked with at Roma.”
“No, I haven’t heard from him,” he said about speaking with Italy national team boss Roberto Mancini.
The 26-year-old started his professional career in 2008 with Genoa, he was loaned in 2010 to Padova, before being acquired by AC Milan in 2011.
After four years with the Rossoneri, he was loaned to Monaco in 2015 and then Roma for six months.
But it was with the Giallarrossi where he found his best football as he was bought in 2016.
