The Montenegro international completed a reported £22million move to the Etihad Stadium in July, bringing an end to a five-year association with former club Fiorentina.
Jovetic was rumoured to have been interested in a switch Serie A champions Juventus, and he admitted the two sides discussed a potential deal.
But he rejected claims he had set his sights on a move to Antonio Conte's side and is happy to have moved to England.
Speaking to Tuttosport, he said: "I never said I wanted Juventus.
"It is true that there was a negotiation. But I chose to go abroad."
Jovetic also backed his former charges to claim a UEFA Champions League spot this season, despite an indifferent start that has seen them drop nine points in the league.
He added: "I am continuing to follow (Fiorentina).
"I have many friends in Florence. They have been a bit unlucky at the start of the season, but even though it will be tough I think they can still reach the Champions League."
