Reported Manchester City transfer target Stephan El Shaarawy is seen in the North-West city, but only to film a commercial.

AC Milan striker Stephan El Shaarawy has long been linked with a switch to Manchester City.

So when the Italian international was spotted with a suitcase in the Manchester suburb of Chorlton, some City supporters could have been forgiven for believing that their club were closing in on his signature.

However, it has transpired that the 20-year-old was only in the area to a film a new advert for Samsung.

The centre-forward is currently on the sidelines with a foot injury, but he could return during next month's Champions League encounter against Barcelona at Camp Nou.
