Starlet Jadon Sancho did not play a single first-team match for the Citizens before joining Borussia Dortmund, where he was immediately handed the No. 7 jersey.

The teenager, who has since become a key player in BVB's senior side, says it was regular game time at the highest level that he was after when he swapped the Etihad for Signal Iduna Park.

"It's been the best year of my life," Sancho told FourFourTwo magazine regarding 2018.

"If you'd told me a year ago that I'd be talking to you now, I'd have thought you were crazy.

"Why Dortmund? It speaks for itself: youngsters get opportunities.

"You've got to thank Dortmund, because it's unheard of for a team that gets 80 000 fans at every home game to put so much faith in youngsters.

"It was crazy how many clubs wanted me – it shows how well you're doing, but I always felt Dortmund was right for me."

Sancho has been linked with Manchester United in recent weeks, with some reports suggesting he could cost the club about £90 million to secure his services.
