    EXCLUSIVE Romano: What future do Jovetic and Ljajic have at Inter?

    Stevan Jovetic and Adem Ljajic joined Inter less than one year ago and expectations were on high on both former Fiorentina starlets.

    Scorer of three goals in the first two Serie A games, the Montenegro International was supposed to claim a starring role at the San Siro, but has been failing to live up to his potential for the rest of the season.

    On the other hand, Ljajic did not expect the starter status under Roberto Mancini and even if his form has been way to unpredictable this term, Ljajic’s performances have been slightly better than Jovetic’s.

    As transfer pundit Fabrizio Romano reports, both players’ future at the club is under strict scrutiny.

    The Nerazzurri have a mandatory € 14 million buy-out clause to make Jovetic’s loan move from Manchester City permanent, while they can exercise an € 11 million option to sign Ljajic on a permanent deal.

    Trouble is, the relationship between Mancini and the former Manchester City star has deteriorated and Inter are looking for suitors who can buy Jovetic for the same fee  they had already agreed with Manchester City. The same formula they used  to get rid of Xherdan Shaqiri last summer.

    Mancini is a long time admirer of Adem Ljajic’s talent, though he believes the Serbia International should be more consistent. Inter will evaluate the player’s performances in the last six games of the season, before starting negotiations to lower his price tag. AS Roma, however, seem not eager to match their rivals’ request and they are not eager to give them a discount, at least at this stage.
