The Montenegrin forward was heavily linked with some of Europe's top clubs this summer prior to completing a switch to the Etihad Stadium from Fiorentina.
He has joined a star-studded squad at City, and one that is expected to challenge for top honours on multiple fronts in 2013/14.
Jovetic claims it is that expectation which convinced him to link up with the Blues, with their a desire on his part to ensure that the club get back on the trophy trail in Manuel Pellegrini's first season in charge.
The 23-year-old told the Daily Mail: "There were other offers, other interest in England, but I don't want to name the clubs. City were quick in the way they moved for me and that proved they wanted me a lot.
"They are playing to win the Premier League. They are playing in the Champions League. They have a very good team and I hope I will be winning some trophies here.
"That's important. I was in Florence for five years, but I won nothing."
He added on where he sees himself fitting into a new-look City side: "I don't feel any pressure.
"I know about how great (Carlos) Tevez and (Sergio) Aguero are as players. They are two fantastic players, but all I can do is my best. Replacing Tevez will be a massive task. But I will just give 100 per cent and try to fill those shoes in the best possible way.
"Obviously it depends on the tactical system, but I like to either play on the left-hand side cutting in or just behind the front striker, playing as a second striker. We will see."
