Milner finally completed his move to City after a transfer saga that has continued all summer.
“It didn’t take too much selling by the boss when you see the players who are already here and the plans for the club,” he told City’s official website.
“The last thing he said to me was ‘be ready for the next game’, and then he said ‘be ready to win the Premier League’, and that’s my ultimate aim – that’s what I want to do and why I’m here.
“There’s a lot of competition to get there, it’s where we all want to be.
“I’m ambitious and I want to win trophies here. I believe this is a great place to do that and I believe we will do it. Hopefully, sooner rather than later.”
