White Hart Lane side hope to bring LA Galaxy man back to the Premier League.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is planning a move to sign LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham in November, when the former Real Madrid and Man United man will be out of contract and therefore available on a free transfer. The veteran England international has helped his MLS side to a commanding position at the top of the standings and is keen to keep playing competitive football, not least as he is hoping to compete in the 2012 Olympics.
Beckham has been in good form stateside this term, currently ranked as the second most prolific assist maker and as soon as his season comes to a close, which could be as a late as November 20th, when the MLS Cup takes place, Tottenham will look to make a short term offer to sign the 36 year old.
Though the one time Old Trafford hero has stated in the past that he would only consider a move back to the Premier League to return to Man United, the fact that Sir Alex Ferguson is unlikely to make such a offer may lead the midfielder to consider other options.
QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has also been linked with a move to bring Beckham back to England but a move to White Hart Lane would appear far more likely. Not least because he knows Harry Redknapp well and has trained with Tottenham previously when keeping himself in shape in the MLS close season.
Beckham is now in his fifth season at LA Galaxy and will hope to bring his time in the MLS to a successful conclusion with a championship win in LA in November. As yet the England man has not decided if he will accept a new deal to stay at the club and as such there is much speculation that he could look to move back to Europe ahead of the 2012 Olympics.
Levy may feel that the high profile of David Beckham may be a money spinning opportunity too good to pass up and the fact that the midfielder is showing good form may also serve to hand Redknapp another option to his squad which saw a number of players leave last month.
The North London club offloaded Jamie O’Hara, Robbie Keane, Jermaine Jenas, Wilson Palacios and Peter Crouch but failed to land a ‘marquee’ signing due to spending restrictions imposed by chairman Levy. Redknapp will be glad that he managed to keep Luka Modric from joining Chelsea but the only outfield signing of note came in the form of Scott Parker. Emmanuel Adebayor arrived on a season long loan deal to help beef up the club’s attack.
