Only €30m cash for Jovetic

Last night Fiorentina met with Stevan Jovetic’s agent and reportedly warned they’ll only accept a €30m cash offer.

The Viola sat down with Fali Ramadani to discuss the numerous proposals coming in for the player from Juventus to Arsenal, Manchester United, PSG and Chelsea.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the crux of the meeting was a warning from the Fiorentina directors that only cash will be acceptable.

This is a response to Juventus, who reportedly offered €12m plus Luca Marrone or Fabio Quagliarella.

Clubs will therefore have to stump up the full €30m asking price without including players in the deal.

It could well put Jovetic beyond Juve’s budget right now, but an intriguing other option emerged in Il Sole 24 Ore.

The newspaper claims Inter would make a bid for the Montenegrin if Indonesian investor Erick Thohir buys up the club.

If Massimo Moratti sells to Thohir, it’s believed €100m would immediately be poured into the transfer market.
