Fiorentina: Cash only for JoJo

Fiorentina’s sporting director Daniele Prade has confirmed reports that the club would only accept a cash only offer from Juventus for Stevan Jovetic.

It has been reported that the Bianconeri are offering part ownership of Luca Marrone and a variant across reports of either Fabio Quagliarella or Emanuele Giaccherini, in a part-exchange deal for Jovetic, with a cash payment of between €12m and €18m.

However, La Viola’s ds has confirmed that reports over the weekend of his club wanting only cash for their €30m-rated star are true, and that is if they were to listen to offers at all.

“The club has been clear about Jovetic. He is not on the market,” Prade told reporters today.

“There is a promise from the President to the boy, that at the end of the season they would talk together, but the conditions otherwise are that we are happy to keep him.

“There will be no part-exchange deal, only cash.

“The offer from Juve including Marrone? There has been no proposal, only a meeting between the President Cognigni and the agent Ramadani, out of courtesy after a long while.”
