Report: Inter Milan pushing for Manchester City’s Stevan Jovetic

The Montenegrin is surplus to requirements at the Etihad and a move could make sense for all parties.

Inter Milan are pushing ahead with a move for Manchester City forward Stevan Jovetic, according to Tuttosport.

The Montenegrin looks set to leave the Etihad this summer having failed to impress during his two years in England so far.

He arrived with manager Manuel Pellegrini but has struggled to replace Sergio Aguero or Edin Dzeko in the City first team while they have also added Wilfried Bony to their side to increase competition.

That has reportedly led Inter Milan to push ahead with a deal as they look to build a team that can qualify for the Champions League once again. The Nerazzurri will chase a loan deal with an option to purchase the player for an agreed fee, claims Tuttosport

They are unlikely to face competition for his signature either, with other potential suitors Juventus not making him a priority, and given they have already signed both Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala, a move looks unlikely.

A good deal for all parties 

A move to Inter would be a good one for Jovetic, who clearly has the talent but has not been given the first team chances at City to impress in the Premier League.

In Milan he would be a guaranteed starter alongside star forward Mauro Icardi thus getting the first team football he is desperate for.

It would also make sense for City, as they could make decent money from a player who isn’t needed, which would allow them to spend elsewhere while staying within the limits imposed by Financial Fair Play.
