Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic reveals that he had the chance to join Italian champions Juventus over the summer.

Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic has claimed that he nearly joined Italian champions Juventus over the summer.

The Montenegro international, 23, arrived at the Etihad Stadium from Fiorentina for £22m in July.

"If I would have not gone to Manchester City, I would have gone to Juventus," he told Tuttosport.

"I was aware of the deal, I read about it on the newspapers and I know that they were speaking with my agent.

"In the end, however, I chose to go abroad and now I'm happy. I don't regret the choice I made."

Jovetic has scored two goals in three games for City so far this season.
