City originally agreed the £27m deal for Jesus in August but the player remained at Palmeiras for the remainder of the Brazilian league season, helping them claim the title in November with a game to spare.
Speaking with newsmen Jesus said: “I want to win titles and Manchester City is a club that is used to winning,” Jesus told the club’s official website.
“City is a club that always competes for the title in the competitions it enters, so that was an important factor, and because of the manager, [Pep] Guardiola, and the squad.”
The club’s director of football, Txiki Begiristain, believes Jesus can fulfil his potential with City.
