They would love to have him at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan the coming season, but they know where they’re standing at, financially, they simply cannot, or, to be more exact, they are not willing to ‘destroy’ their budget.
It’s a complicated situation as the player earns very high wages and Inter are asking for an equally high transfer fee. We are not ready or capable of taking on such a burden. We’ve already reached our limit
Sevilla sporting director Oscar Arias told ABCSevilla.es, talking about Stevan Jovetic. The 27-year-old Montenegrin striker spent the second half of last season at Sevilla, he left the Spanish club people very satisfied, but
it’s a bit of everything and not just one reason. We could handle a higher wage than what we’re offering now, but only if we didn’t have to pay a transfer fee. Or, the other way round, we could pay the fee if the player’s wage demands weren’t so high
as Arias put it, adding
in our business model, we must keep costs contained. We don’t have the wage budget of a Manchester City, Barcelona, Chelsea or Real Madrid. We can make an effort, as we did with Jovetic, but always within the parameters. We must be realistic and admit that, at times, some things simply cannot be.
