The 27-year-old has been an important player at the Signal Iduna Park since joining from Wisla Krakow in 2007, and has helped them win two Bundesliga titles and the DFB-Pokal, as well as reach the final of the UEFA Champions League in the past three seasons.
However, Dortmund's success in unearthing gems has turned into a problem lately as a number of Europe's biggest clubs have looked to poach their best players.
Just last summer, Japan international Shinji Kagawa left for Manchester United and wonderkid Mario Gotze joined Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich at the end of last season, while Polish striker Robert Lewandowski is heavily linked to leave the club within the next 12 months.
Although Blaszczykowski has not garnered as much interest, he remains one of the best wingers in Europe on his day and he has now revealed that he turned down a move to join the Citizens as he felt his current club had more to offer.
"Dortmund simply had the advantage over Manchester City," he said, according to Przeglad Sportowy.
"We have a great squad, fantastic manager, incredible supporters and a very bright future ahead of us.
"In Dortmund, me and my family have everything we need. I did not pursue interest from other clubs in my services."
Following the departure of Gotze, the Poland international is expected to play an even bigger role in the coming season as BVB look to wrest the league title back from Bayern, along with the likes of Lewandowski, Marco Reus and Ilkay Gundogan.
