It was one of the most expensive substitutions in Inter’s long and proud history. When Stevan Jovetic came on as a second half substitute against Pescara on Sunday, his appearance triggered a €14.5m payment to Manchester City.
According to Calciomercato, the terms of Jovetic’s initial 18-month loan to Inter from City last summer stipulated that the arrangement would be made permanent once the forward played his first competitive game of 2016-17.
The Montenegrin’s loan was due to expire in December 2016, although the Nerazzurri would have nonetheless been obliged to keep him if they were above the Serie A relegation zone in December.
Inter and de Boer obviously knew this before the match, so the question is whether De Boer’s act of bringing him on is a signal of intent to keep the player? Jovetic is not in Inter’s Europa League squad, so he could be used an an attacking option on the Sunday after Europa League games to give Icardi a break.
