The Italy international completed a move to the Blues last weekend, snubbing the Premier League champions in the process.
City's interest in Jorginho was made public by Napoli and the player's agent over the past few months, but Guardiola insists he is not disappointed.
"No, I'm not disappointed," Guardiola told reporters, according to FourFourTwo,
"We tried, but at the end all my advice for the players is that they have to go where they want to go.
"For the guy, it would have been a mistake for him and for us if he had decided to come here when he wanted to go with Maurizio and Chelsea.
"So it is important that English football has received an exceptional player and at the end if they want to come, it's better they come.
"If he decides to go to Chelsea for the reasons he has explained or will explain, then all the best for him."
