Manchester City Complete Jovetic Signing

Manchester City have now added another name to their strike force as the Premier League runners-up have announced the much-awaited signing of Stevan Jovetic. Jovetic’s signing follows that of Alvaro Negredo’s, who sealed a move to the club recently.

City have agreed on a £25.8million deal for the striker, who passed a medical at the Etihad Stadium. The Montenegro international had also been linked with Arsenal and Juventus earlier this summer.

Fiorentina officials were in Manchester on Thursday to discuss the transfer for Jovetic, who arrived the next day to undergo a medical. Fiorentina have confirmed the deal via their twitter account, that reads,

"An agreement has been reached with Manchester City Football Club for the permanent sale of the player Stevan Jovetic."

The City’s official website read:

'Manchester City are delighted to announce the signing of Stevan Jovetic from Fiorentina.

'The 23-year-old Montenegro international will now join up with his new team-mates over the weekend.'

Jovetic has become Manuel Pellegrini’s fourth summer signing after Jesus Navas, Fernandinho and Negredo, taking the club’s spending total to £90 million.
