Fiorentina’s €30m price-tag put on Stevan Jovetic’s head  has had the desired effect as Beppe Marotta distances Juventus from a potential deal.
Marotta yesterday named the 22-year-old as an ideal player for the Bianconeri,  prompting La Viola’s assessment of the situation this morning.
When asked of the price the Turin side have been publicly quoted, Marotta looked to clarify the Old Lady’s position.
“Do Juve have €30m for Jovetic? It’s a big request,” reflected the dg to Tuttomercatoweb.com.
“Everyone is free to determine the price they want. It’s a legitimate right, but we have not entered into negotiations with Fiorentina. €30m is difficult and for now we will not talk about it.
“The fans like Robin Van Persie? You have to have dreams and ambitions, but then we must also deal with the reality of the facts. We know what we are doing and that is the most important thing.”
