“Mancini’s presence certainly influenced my decision a great deal. I already worked with him, so he knows my football and the kind of person I am.
“I am really happy to be working with him again,” the Brazilian told FCInterNews.it.
“Why did I join City? Without doubt because I have the opportunity to play in the Champions League and win other titles with a new club. I needed new motivation and the time had come to leave Inter.
“I have been very happy in Milan and won many trophies, but I don’t want to stop now. I want to continue winning and achieving my objectives.
“I think Manchester City can help me to obtain more success.”
