Manchester City new boy Stevan Jovetic has admitted that he did receive some interest from Juventus before he left Fiorentina, but that he is happy with his decision to move to the Premier League.
The Montenegrin international spent five seasons in Florence and attracted a lot of attention from the world's biggest clubs, prior to his £22m move to the Etihad Stadium.
And one of those clubs to have courted the striker appears to have been Juventus. The Old Lady have already been rather active in this transfer window, securing the services of strikers Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez.
Speaking to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Jovetic declared: "Juventus looked at me, they were interested, but it was my decision and I chose Man City."
While Juve will be disappointed with their failure to lure their target 400 kilometres north to Turin, they have still made two excellent signings who will help provide goals in the upcoming campaign.
A regular goal scorer was missing from the 2012/13 Scudetto-winning squad, but both Tevez and Llorente are capable of scoring at least 20 goals in all competitions.
With the likes of Jovetic and Edinson Cavani leaving Serie A, Juventus may fancy their chances even more in the big fixtures against Napoli and Fiorentina next season.
