Report: Inter Milan look to amend Stevan Jovetic deal

Inter Milan have reportedly contacted Manchester City regarding the possibility of cancelling their obligations to sign Stevan Jovetic on a permanent basis.

 

Tuttosport are reporting that Inter Milan have contacted Manchester City regarding on-loan striker Stevan Jovetic.

 

Last summer, the Premier League club allowed Jovetic to return to Serie A after failing to replicate the form that made him a huge success with Fiorentina between 2008 and 2013.

 

The terms of the 18-month deal included an obligation for Inter to purchase Jovetic for £12million at the end of the contract, which is scheduled to run out at the end of 2016, but the Serie A side reportedly want to cancel the agreement.

 

Since moving to the San Siro, Jovetic has netted just five times in 20 appearances in all competitions, a goals-per-game ratio that he maintained over 42 matches with Manchester City.

 

Given that the Montenegro international has failed to improve in the last six months and has scored just one league goal since August 30, City may order Inter to fulfil the original agreement.

 

However, any decision may be delayed until the summer when Pep Guardiola takes over from Manuel Pellegrini as the new boss at the Etihad Stadium.
