As per the latest reports, Manchester United are keen to sign Bayern Munich star defender Philipp Lahm. The 31-year old have drawn interest from Manchester United earlier but opted to stay at his home club.
The player has won every thing a footballer can imagine including World Cup, Champions League and Club World Cup. The player is always interested to make a move for Premier League and reports suggest that he is keen on a move to Old Trafford this summer.
Lahm in a recent interview said, “Yes, as a player you always think about your options, and there was a time where Manchester United made an approach for me – and Barcelona looked at me too – so I considered life in England or Spain.”
“The Premier League was an interesting possibility. But in the end I decided to stay in Germany. Bayern is my home town club and I thought good things could happen for the club, so I signed on for more years, and it proved to be the right decision.”
“I felt we had the chance to win the Champions League, and I was was right. I’d rather win it with my club, my home town team, than with any other.
“So England might have been nice – but I am glad I stayed in Germany.”
Manchester United have been looking for a quality right-back and the Red Devils might have the best chance to sign the best right-back in the world.
