There are reports Stevan Jovetic’s agent is meeting with Manchester City today after they offered Fiorentina €32m.
The proposal is slightly more than the €30m buy-out clause and takes the bid to £27.5m.
According to Calciomercato.com, Manchester City have dived in with the potentially-winning offer and a contract worth €4.5m per season net plus performance-related bonuses.
It is claimed that agent Fali Ramadani is in England for a meeting with Manchester City directors this afternoon.
Fiorentina are more than happy with the situation, but both clubs must convince Jovetic to give up on his Juventus dream.
The Montenegro international repeatedly confirmed he wants to join the Bianconeri, but they are so far refusing to stump up the €30m cash needed for the deal.
On Tuesday night Fiorentina President Andrea Della Valle warned “they can give us €30m cash or nothing at all. Otherwise, we’ll give him to someone else.
“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...”
As Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal are also showing an interest in the Jovetic situation, City have reportedly decided to speed up the process.
