Ex-Inter attacker Stevan Jovetic claims he foresaw his move to Monaco as “I was talking about them to my girlfriend” before they called him.
Jovetic left Inter to join Monaco towards the end of the summer transfer window, and the Montenegrin believes taking on Kylian Mbappe’s No 10 jersey was fate.
“I’ll tell you a little story,” he told Goal.com.
“I was at Inter and thought about what would happen. I talked to my girlfriend and told her, ‘Monaco are a big club, why haven’t they called me?’
“The next day I received a call from my agent, who told me that Monaco were interested in me. I replied, ‘great, I was talking about them to my girlfriend yesterday!’
“Honestly, I’m happy. They talked to my agent before calling me. It was during this phone call that I became convinced.
“It’s something you feel inside. I didn’t think about it for long and decided to come here.
“Marseille? I knew they wanted me, but I never said I wanted to go there and they knew that.
“I’m grateful to OM because they’re a good club, but I chose Monaco.”
