Bayern Munich and Germany legend: I REJECTED a move to Manchester United.

Lahm, 31, has spent his entire career with Bayern and won 19 major trophies during his time in Bavaria.

The German - who made 113 appearances for the national team - was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League several years ago.

And when recently pressed on which team tried to lure him to to lure him to England, the veteran defender revealed that Premier League giants Manchester United chief tried to acquire his services.

He told Squawka: "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 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.”
