New Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean has told talkSPORT he is interested in signing LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham in January.
Speaking to Drive Time, Kean, who was appointed as Sam Allardyce’s successor, will be looking to strengthen his squad in the next transfer window, and England’s most capped outfield player ever could fit the bill.
Asked if he would want Beckham, Kean said: “If he was available to come in you never know. He’s very good friends with our full-back Michel Salgado who speaks very highly of him and I think whoever gets him, if he decides to come back, will be getting magnificent quality.
“A number of years ago when I was at Fulham we shared the same training camp as Real Madrid and at that time he didn’t think he could come back into England, now maybe that’s changed.” (TalkSPORT)
Given that David Beckham has stated that he would only move back to the Premier League to return to Old Trafford it seems pretty damn pointless for the new Blackburn Rovers boss to make hopeful glances at the former Man United man.
The Ewood Park side have made a habit recently out of making unlikely moves for big names, the club’s new owners reportedly approached Diego Maradona about the vacant post, a move that clearly did not work and this offer is sure to fail also.
It seems that whilst Becks is keen to get a loan deal somewhere in Europe in January it doesn’t look like there are too many viable options open to the 35 year old midfielder.
