Fiorentina warned “we won’t wait much longer” for Juventus to offer €30m cash for Stevan Jovetic after Manchester City showed an interest.
The player has said he wants to join the Bianconeri, but so far negotiations have fallen flat.
“They can give us €30m cash or nothing at all. Otherwise, we’ll give him to someone else,” declared President Andrea Della Valle on Mediaset Premium.
“It’s time to understand whether Juve have the money or not. I think they do. We will not accept players in part-exchange.
“We won’t wait much longer...”
This can be considered an ultimatum to Juventus, using Manchester City’s interest to put further pressure on the Turin giants.
Della Valle also commented on Fiorentina’s capture of Bayern Munich centre-forward Mario Gomez.
“The negotiations were important and difficult, but he was the one we were missing in Vincenzo Montella’s side.”
