New Juventus signing Miralem Pjanic says career progression and trophies are the reasons why he rejected important offers to sign for the Bianconeri.
The 26-year-old signed from Serie A rivals Roma for £25.4million on a five-year contract.
He was a target for Chelsea and Manchester United according to reports in Italy.
He was one of the key players for the Giallorossi last season as they ended their Serie A campaign in third place.
"My career has always been on the rise," Pjanic told Mercato365.
"I grew by taking small steps and I believe this was the right moment to leave Roma and join Juventus.
"I want to win, I want trophies and I hope to do it with Juventus, a very strong team.
"I don't mind the pressure, I know that players like [Andrea] Pirlo and [Michel] Platini all featured for Juve but I want to repay the faith the directors have shown in me.
"I'm at my peak and want to keep progressing here at Juventus."
