Montenegro defender Stefan Savic believes Stevan Jovetic, his team-mate for club and country, should join Manchester City.
Roberto Mancini's side secured a first option deal on Jovetic in Matija Nastasic's transfer from Fiorentina
And former City defender Savic thinks his compatriot is good enough to make a move to one of Europe's top clubs, urging him to choose City.
"Jovetic can play for one of the top clubs," Savic said. "I hope he does because he is one of my closest friends.
"I would recommend City to him. I think City's a rising team, one of the best clubs in Europe. They will win trophies and be in the Champions League every year.
"It was hard for me there because I came straight from the Serbian league. I won a league title but after a season, I knew I had to play regularly to improve as a player. So I left City - it was my decision.
"It is different for Stevan. He has five years experience, he could play straight away with Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez."
Savic claims that Jovetic's technical quality and determination can be compared to that of Manchester United star Wayne Rooney.
"He is a second striker, similar to Rooney because he's good with the ball, gifted technically and intelligent," he said. "Off the pitch he is a quiet guy but on it, he fights."
