Lahm tells Mourinho: You'd have to join Bayern to team up with me

The Bayern Munich captain has said that the current Real Madrid manager would have to coach at the Allianz Arena in order for the duo to work together
Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has quashed speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid this summer.

Reports that Jose Mourinho had made the 28-year-old his priority in the transfer market had circulated on Thursday.

However, the Germany skipper insists that he is not interested in a switch to the Spanish capital, and that the Portuguese coach would have to move to the Allianz Arena in order to work with him.

"It's great praise from such a coach," Lahm said at a press conference. "Never say never, but he would have to come to coach Bayern for this to happen.

"I've got a long-term contract and I feel very comfortable here."

Lahm was part of the Bayern Munich team that beat Real Madrid on penalties in the Champions League semi-final in May.
