But reports in Bild claim the legendary full-back might be about to make a sensational comeback.

And although he has previously been adamant that he would not be tempted back onto the pitch, he has a number of offers to choose from.

Bundesliga side Hamburg have offered him the chance to pull on the boots once again.

And second tier outfit St Pauli have also contacted Lahm with a written offer.

Both clubs are willing to hand him a one-year deal with the option of a further year – and the ex-star has yet to reject either offer.
