El Shaarawy expresses disappointment on Instagram after Roma move falls through

RomaPress – Stephan El Shaarawy was one step away from rejoining Roma today on a loan deal from Shanghai Shenhua.

However, the operation for the attacker fell through after Roma encountered delays for the sale of Diego Perotti.

The 32 year-old and Fenerbahçe had a nearly 10-hours long contractual disagreement that cost the Giallorossi precious time in closing the operation for El Shaarawy –both the agent of the 27 year-old and Shanghai Shenhua confirmed that there wasn’t enough time to complete the deal.

The Italian international was desperate to rejoin his former club for the remainder of the season to improve his chances at making Roberto Mancini’s squad for the Euro 2021 competition.

El Shaarawy even took to Instagram to express his disappointment that his return to Roma failed to come to fruition.
