Manchester United have entered the battle for Fiorentina star striker Stevan Jovetic.The Sun says United are going head to head with noisy neighbours Manchester City in a £27million fight for Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic.

United boss David Moyes has turned to the Montenegro international after failing to convince Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski to move to Old Trafford.

It is bad news for City boss Manuel Pellegrini, who had thought the forward was in the bag.

Jovetic's agent Fali Ramadani has been in London this week after the Italian side gave the go-ahead for talks with potential buyers.

United are now ready to match City's £120,000-a-week offer and think their stature gives them the edge.
