Stevan Jovetic: Can only leave for £30million

However, he has reiterated the club's position that he could leave if their asking price of €30million (£25.7m), cash only, is met.

Juventus were quick to make contact over Jovetic and are believed to have offered players plush cash for the Montenegrin, who has also been linked with Arsenal and Manchester United.

Prade, though, is adamant that Fiorentina are happy for Jovetic to remain at the club.

"Stevan is not on the market. There is a promise made by the president [Andrea Della Valle] to him, that he can leave him if we get an offer of €30million cash," he told Corriere dello Sport

"If not we'd gladly keep him. Jovetic has not said he wants to go away, it's a subject that will have to do with him and the president.

"There have not been offers, we only met the player's agent Ramadani. The president has not authorised me to speak with Juventus, it is up to the president to decide."

As well as Jovetic, his team-mate Adem Ljajic was linked with a move to his former club United.

But Prade says they are in talks with the young Serb over a new contract, and he added: "The Ljajic contract, we'll discuss with the agent in the coming days."

The Fiorentina chief did confirm that they are hoping to conclude a deal for Malaga winger Joaquin.

"There is a negotiation with Malaga, we'll talk this week with them to try to close the deal," he said.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
