City refused to give up in their pursuit of the Montenegro international and those efforts have been rewarded with the capture of one of European football's hottest properties.
"It was a long time they wanted me, last year also, and I stayed with Fiorentina," Jovetic told the club's official website.
"They wanted me more than everyone and I decided to come here. They are fighting for the Premier League and also for the Champions League, and this is the reason I came here."
Jovetic has also set himself a goal target for his debut Premier League campaign, and is confident he can slip seamlessly into whichever system City coach Manuel Pellegrini decides to adopt.
He added: "I hope (for) about 15-20 in all competitions.
"I have played in a lot of systems. I can play as a striker, behind the striker or on the left."
