As we move in to the off-season an unprecedented amount of managerial movement around Europe will surely see an already frantic transfer market go in to overdrive. This will give plenty of opportunities for transfer rumour and gossip. So how much of it is realistic?
Manchester City boss Pellegrini is pushing hard to land Fiorentina’s 23-year-old Stefan Jovetic. The Montenegro striker has also been targeted by Man United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Juventus.
What’s the story? Jovetic was supposedly heading to Arsenal earlier in the transfer window but as with all their transfer work, that’s vanished seemingly. He was never targeted by Chelsea or Man United and Juventus have signed Carlos Tevez.
Does it make sense? I guess so. Jovetic could play in behind Aguero with Silva and Navas either side of him to form a potentially dangerous attacking unit.
Is the price right? £28m is a lot for a forward who isn’t an out and out goal scorer but City do need someone to juice up their attack which looked very flat at times last year.
Will it happen? 9/10 – I think it will now. City have bounced around, linked with various names.
