Stevan Jovetic could return to Serie A this season with Juventus if Manchester City complete the loan signing of Monaco forward Radamel Falcao.

Manchester City are prepared to rival Real Madrid for the Colombian striker, but will only offer a loan deal to ensure they comply with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

If a deal for Falcao can be reached with Monaco, who spent €66.8 million on the 28-year-old at the beginning of last season, Manchester City would be willing to let Jovetic leave.

The Montenegro striker was linked with a move to Turin before signing for The Citizens from Fiorentina last summer, and, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Giuseppe Marotta  is keen to revive his interest in Jovetic to complete the Bianconeri’s attack.

Jovetic was hampered by injuries last campaign but scored six goals in 16 appearances toward the end of the season as Manchester City secured the Premier League title.

The 24-year-old striker has been in fine form during City’s pre-season but would still be allowed to leave by Manuel Pellegrini if Falcao was brought to the Ethiad Stadium.

A return to Fiorentina would also be an option for Jovetic, but a move to Juventus is far more likely.
