Bayern Munich appear very close to agreeing a new deal which will keep full back Philipp Lahm at the club, in a move that will no doubt disappoint FC Barcelona and other suitors.

German international full back Philipp Lahm is set to agree to a contractual deal extension at the Allianz Arena, which will keep him at the club beyond the 2009, when his current deal expires.

Lahm admitted to the Münchner Tageszeitung that negotiations with the club were close to a conclusion.

“Discussions have been ongoing this week with Uli Hoeneß. I can well imagine that we will come to an agreement early next week†Lahm explained.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has also admitted that he has a good feeling following the negotiations with Lahm and is sure the player will be remaining at Bayern for the foreseeable future. “We are on course for a satisfactory and fair conclusion†Rummenigge admitted.

The news will come as a blow to the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United, who were linked with the 24 year old defender. Barca were the main club tipped with a move for Lahm after declaring their interest a few weeks ago.

Lahm himself has always said that he would like to play abroad at another European club, but that looks like it will have to wait as he commits the next few seasons to Bayern under the new regime of Jürgen Klinsmann.

“I telephoned him a few weeks ago†said Lahm. “And he assured me that I was going to be a key part of his defence.â€

No no no :(
Crap, who are we going to get now with Aves signing a contract with Barca, an option may be Willy Sagnol not young or anything but a good player or maybe even Boswinga.

I think the only realistic option left is Jose Bosingwa.
Hope he could be another good addition for United's
Portuguese contingent, currently featuring Nani, Ronnie,
Anderson, CQ & next season, Manucho. ;)

Once again I wouldn't mind Hargeaves at right back. He would be an expensive right back, but he really wants to play for Man Utd and I'd quite like to see a central midfield of Carrick and Anderson.

Whenever we need a def midfielder Hargo could move there and Neville + Simpson to fill the RB position.

I'm a huge fan of Philipp Lahm but I would not buy him for United to play at Right Back. He's right footed but his natural position is left back and he plays really well there. If we buy a fullback I would want it to be a specialist right back.
