Manchester City have confirmed the signing of Alvaro Negredo from Sevilla for a fee reported to be £20m.City will now likely turn their attention to finalising the signing of Jovetic after Fiorentina confirmed on Thursday that a deal had been agreed between the two clubs. The Montenegro international is looking forward to linking up with Manuel Pellegrini's side and a reunion with his former Fiorentina team-mate Matija Nastasic. "Florence will remain in my heart," the 23-year-old told firenzeviola.it. "I came here as a boy and I'm leaving as a man. This is a beautiful city and I was really fine. "But I'm happy to go to City because they play in the Premier League and they are a very important team. I just want to win something. "And then I'll find my great friend Nastasic. "I will be leaving a very strong Fiorentina and I'm happy about that. I wish that they can win the scudetto. "It would have been nice to play with Mario Gomez, but I wanted a change of scenery. "I know that Fiorentina's fans are a little angry with me, it's normal, but I have never said anything bad, either about them or about Fiorentina." Viola coach Vincenzo Montella added: "Stevan gave so much to Fiorentina, but he had expressed a desire to grow elsewhere and I wish him good luck."
