El Shaarawy had to settle for a place on the bench last night as Milan ran out < a href="/football/ac-milan/result/result-balotelli-inspires-milan-victory_102237.html">3-1 winners over Cagliari in Serie A, with Robinho preferred alongside Mario Balotelli in attack.
Despite being dropped last weekend, El Shaarawy is determined to fight for his place at Milan, insisting that he will reject any late interest in his signature.
He told Sport Mediaset: "I have decided to stay at Milan. I have made a precise decision and, no matter what offer arrives, I want to stay at Milan.
"There's more competition in the squad now, but there will be playing time for everybody. I will fight for my place in the team."
The 20-year-old has scored 24 goals in 78 appearances for Milan since arriving at the San Siro two years ago.
