The French international has signed a five-year deal at Stadio Delle Alpi after seeing out his contract at Roma.
Liverpool and Milan had held a long-term interest in the versatile defender, but Juve moved quickly to snap him up on a free transfer.
"Things went very fast, the first contact with Juventus happened three days ago," Zebina told L'Equipe.
"It showed they really wanted me. With AC Milan discussions started three months ago but then everything stopped.
"With Roma there was never any opportunity to get a contract extension, the club is experiencing financial difficulties.
"I was also contacted by Chelsea and Liverpool but I could not accept."
Zebina is looking forward to the challenge at Juve as he looks to help them bounce back from a disappointing season this term.
"Juventus represents an exceptional challenge for me," he continued.
"I change club, management and mentality also. This club has a real culture of victory.
"In Rome we've had extraordinary players, we became Italian champions which was an exceptional moment in my career but I am still frustrated.
"I think we could have won more trophies and I hope I will with Juventus."
