Tottenham Hotspur have missed out on signing Montenegro international forward Mirko Vucinic.
The striker has joined Juventus in a £13.1million deal from Serie ‘A’ rivals Roma and has penned a four-year deal.
Vucinic’s name featured regularly on a lot of Spurs forums about a possible move to the Lane, but it’s a case of not to be once again.
“Juventus have done well to take Vucinic, he’s a great signing,” Montenegro Football Federation president Dejan Savicevic told Tuttosport.
“With him, the black and whites can get back to winning ways. He’s a great player, one of the best five or six strikers in the world.
“And now that he’s matured this transfer will allow him to take a definite step up in quality.
“He could have gone to Chelsea or Manchester United because Mirko has the ability to play in big clubs and he deserves it.
“Football goes in cycles, as happened with Milan. After some tough seasons Juventus should get back to being one of the best.”
