Lahm preparing to leave Bayern

Published Add your comment

Philipp Lahm is preparing his departure from Bayern Munich this summer after talks over a new contract broke down.

The Germany international rated his chances of remaining with Bayern as 50/50 when asked about his future following the German Cup triumph over Dortmund on Saturday, but those odds have been significantly reduced after the Bavarian club withdrew their offer of a new contract on Tuesday.

"It is my intention to leave Bayern at some stage of my career and that is not going to be when I am past my best," Lahm told Stern magazine on Wednesday. "A transfer abroad is the logical next step."
