The transfer saga of Bayern Munich & German international full back Philipp Lahm to Spanish giants FC Barcelona is almost a done deal according to reports in the Spanish press.

The Spanish sports paper ‘As’ has reported that the defender has come to agreement with the Catalan giants over a four year contract.

What is unclear though is whether the 24 year old will join this summer for a fee, or arrive next summer on a free transfer.

“Philipp Lahm has a contract with us until 2009 and I believe that he will fulfil it” commented Bayern Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

The German club recently withdrew their offer of an extension to the international’s contract after his demands were deemed to high. Lahm looks set to be a direct replacement for Gianluca Zambrotta, who is poised to return to his homeland, probably with AC Milan.

Even though Bayern manager Uli Hoeneß explained that the club’s decision to withdraw the contract offer didn’t mean the door was closed on Lahm, the player admitted in an interview with ‘Stern’ that his mind was made up.

“My decision is set. My career plan means that one day I will leave FC Bayern and not just when I have reached my peak” he said.

“For me the logical step is play abroad.”

But sadly United will only be left with Jose Bosingwa, the only player out of those right-backs whom we were linked to during the summer transfer window market.

Lahm is a quality player, there is no denying that, but why is everyone
so obsessed with buying new players all the time.
Lets at least wait till the season is over ffs.
Ever heard of Neville?, Brown? or OShea, Simpson, Pique, Evans etc......
We need to chill with these transfer dealings till AFTER the season.
We all know a forward is the main priority...
Wes just signed a new deal and our club captain hasnt gone just yet.....

I hope its not true because Lahm is the RB I want, as I've said many times :p

I really like Simpson, and would love for him to get a chance, but Lahm is absolute class and can provide cover for both FB positions.

And as I've also said many times, Alves is a definite NO! He can't defend to save himself.
