Jovetic hints at move away from Fiorentina

Fiorentina star Stevan Jovetic has fuelled speculation of a move to Manchester City by admitting he wants to test himself at a bigger club.

City have reportedly negotiated a first-option agreement with Fiorentina for Jovetic, who is unwilling to increase the release clause in his contract, believed to be around 30 million euros.

And while the Montenegrin striker did not directly address the interest of the English Premier League champions, he feels ready to move onto bigger and better things.

“It’s better to play in a team where you know you are a starting player, but in life you have to grow and test yourself,” he told Gazzetta Dello Sport. “It’s a risk that I would face.

“There are three categories of players. Those like (Francesco) Totti, who chose to stay in their home, the team where they’re born – a choice I would have made if I had stayed in Belgrade – those that stay in a place because they have fear to move, and those that fear can’t stop. Me? I have no fear.”

Serie A leaders Juventus are also long-term admirers of the 23-year-old, but earlier this month Fiorentina director Daniele Prade revealed the club would prefer not to sell their star man to a domestic rival.
