There are reports Fiorentina are introducing an ‘anti-Juventus’ clause into Stevan Jovetic’s new contract to bar him from moving to Turin.
The two clubs were already in talks for the Montenegro international this summer, but the Viola rejected a bid thought to be worth €25m.
The rapport between the sides has always been tense, but the situation exploded in the last days of the transfer session over Dimitar Berbatov.
Fiorentina publicly accused Juve of acting unprofessionally by intercepting a done deal with the Manchester United striker, but the Bianconeri insist they only approached him after being told Berbatov had turned down the move.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, Fiorentina are not going to let that ‘snub’ pass and will try to include a clause in Jovetic’s contract ensuring he won’t end up in Turin.
This would bar Jo-Jo from joining Juventus even if they were to pay the €40m buy-out clause.
