Arsenal have also been linked with Beckham after he trained with the North London club in 2008 and Wenger has admitted that he would complete the signing, but there is not room in the Emirates Stadium squad.
The Gunners boss said in The Sun: “I would consider signing David Beckham, but we have (Theo) Walcott, (Samir) Nasri, (Tomas) Rosicky, (Andrey) Arshavin and (Emmanuel) Eboue who can play on the flanks.” (Sky Sports)
Wenger’s quotes on the matter are far more kind that those of Sir Alex Ferguson who dismissed the idea of signing the former Man United star on the grounds that he is too old, which is a bitter pill for David Beckham to swallow given that the likes of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville are all older than the LA Galaxy star.
David Beckham has of course trained with the north London club in the past and that is probably the only reason that the Arsenal boss has even been questioned on the matter of a possible loan spell for the 35 year old. All talk of a potential move back to the Premier League is in many ways redundant at the player himself has stated numerous times that he would only move back to an England if it was a return to Old Trafford, something that seems very unlikely indeed.
