Stevan Jovetic a Juventus target ?

January 12, 2015 - 5:41 pm

Reports in the English press suggest Stevan Jovetic could join Juventus if Manchester City sign Wilfried Bony.

City are on the verge of completing a €38m move for the Swansea striker who’s currently on international duty at the AFCON. Financial Fair Play regulations would mean the English Champions would need to offload some of their players once the deal is completed.

English tabloids the Daily Express and the Sun are both reporting that Juventus have shown interest in the former Fiorentina striker. The Bianconeri were rumoured to be close to signing Jojo last summer before he made the move to England.

Both papers suggest that Juve would initially like to loan the player and opt to sign him outright in the summer. City paid €28m for the player and the reports suggest that the Manchester club would like to include Jovetic in a deal for Paul Pogba.

The stories in the English press contradict comments made by Beppe Marotta who confirmed just yesterday to Sky Sports Italia :”We have an important player in Pogba and we don’t have a need to sell him.”

    This would be a dream signing for me, provided he stays fit

      It would be great to see Jovetic in Juve colours and really this should be a player we should able get because i know we have 28m to spend and he would most likely agree to join us because he doesn’t start many games for Man City. But i’m worried that Marotta will play the hardball then give up because Man City aren’t excepting the hardball offers and then some other club will sign him.

    I would take Jovetic for a loan with an option to buy for €15 mil, but nothing more. His persistent injury issues at Fiorentina and Man City give me a big pause. Plus, he is already cup-tied in CL.
