Fiorentina's Jovetic: I wasn't interested in Chelsea, Man City offers

Stevan Jovetic insists he's happy at Fiorentina.

The striker was the subject of intense interest from Chelsea and Manchester City this summer.

"I'm happy to be at Fiorentina, otherwise I would have left," the 22-year-old forward told Sky Sport Italia.

"I had a lot of offers, but, in the end, I decided to stay because I was promised that the club would build a great team this summer and they have done that.

"For me, it is important that I am part of an ambitious side who can fight for important objectives.

"My agent did his job, he told me of the proposals that came in, but I have to ultimately make the decision where to play my football and I'm happy with the choice made."
