Stevan Jovetic looks set for an Etihad exit this January, with Manchester City struggling to abide by the Financial Fair Play Rules…
Manchester City are bringing Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony to the Etihad this January, but need to balance the books to comply with Financial Fair Play rules, according to the Express.
The cash rich club have agreed a £30m deal for the Ivory Coast international, who is currently away at the African Cup of Nations. After being penalised last year however, they are struggling to keep up with FFP, and need to balance the books somehow.
Stevan Jovetic is allegedly the player who will make way, with Manuel Pellegrini hoping to sell the Montenegrin to Serie A side Juventus this January.
A £22m purchase from Fiorentina in 2013, the Man City man has struggled with injury during his time at the club. He has scored 11 goals in 32 appearances for the club, and has proved effective when utilised. With City already boasting one injury plagued striker in Sergio Aguero however, Pellegrini is seemingly looking for someone a little more robust.
