Fiorentina have denied that they have any agreement in place with Manchester City over the possible future transfer of forward Stevan Jovetic, reports SkySports. And sporting director Daniele Prade has rejected talks of his departure in January.
"Jovetic's buy-out clause? I want to close this issue once and for all," he told La Nazione. "What we will do, will be done in a transparent way.
"So when there will be news about Jovetic's contract, we will notify it in an official manner.
"Jo-Jo is our player and he will be at least until the end of the season."
Fiorentina technical director Eduardo Macia, though, admitted that Jovetic will be sold eventually.
"It will be very difficult to keep him at Fiorentina, he is a great player, who will eventually play for another club," he told Todomercadoweb.es.
