Mitch McGovern has officially nominated Carlton as his preferred destination for the 2019 season.
McGovern’s manager Colin Young confirmed his client would like to become a Blue in 2019 on SEN’s Whateley.
“He had a medical with the Carlton Football Club yesterday and it went fairly well and I know they had a meeting this morning and so Carlton’s his choice,” Young told SEN’s Whateley.
“We will be trying to work with Adelaide and Carlton to get a suitable trade done.”
McGovern requested a trade from the Crows after he lost faith in the club during the 2018 season.
The 23-year-old forward has been accused of being “hungry for cash” by former Crows coach Malcolm Blight.
But Young rubbished claims his client is leaving Adelaide for monetary gains.
“I know that Kane Cornes and Malcolm Blight and a few blokes in Adelaide have said he’s absolutely leaving for money,”
“If he was going to leave for money, he would’ve got an extra million dollars to go to Fremantle last year so that’s just rubbish.”
“He’s on a very good contract at the Crows, it’s extremely good, so it’s definitely not about the money.”
“His contract from Carlton will be much similar to the one he’s on at Adelaide, it’s more about the post code where he wants to live.”
“It’ll be somewhere between three and five years, it should be through after this morning’s meeting.”
