Harry Redknapp says his bid to bring David Beckham to Tottenham is a ‘no-goer’, though expects the midfielder to train with the club for a month.
It appeared likely LA Galaxy man Beckhamwould link up with Spurs on a two-month loan in the MLS close-season, with Redknappanticipating to wrap up the deal this weekend.
However, Redknapp has now revealed ‘insurance issues’ have prevented the move from going ahead after the 35-year-old picked up an Achilles injury while on loan at AC Milan last season.
“I don’t think it’s going to happen,” Redknapp told Sky Sports News.
“I spoke with the chairman and I think there are big problems with insurance issues and everything.
“He got injured last year at Milan, I think there was issues there with insurance.”
Redknapp says the former England captain is likely to arrive at White Hart Lane this week to begin a month’s training with the north London club.
He said: “What’s going to happen, David is welcome to come and train here for a month or so, which I think he would like to do and we’re pleased to have him come and train.
“It will be nice to have him here training with us for a month and I think he’ll be great to have around the place and he’ll be a good influence on everybody and I look forward to him coming.
“But I think as far as playing goes it looks like it’s a no-goer.” (Sky Sports)
It seems the offer to allow David Beckham to train with the club is something of an afterthought, why would the LA Galaxy man travel thousands of miles to train in north London? I get that he wants to stay fit during the MLS off season but clearly he could do that in Los Angeles, no?
Some believe that any training plans would be in relation to Tottenham considering signing the England veteran when his contract in America is completed in November, but that would be something of a stretch given that he would be 36 by then and perhaps too over the hill to offer a new contract to?
