Veteran midfielder to extend MLS career.
David Beckham has signed a new two year LA Galaxy deal ending weeks of speculation about the England veteran’s future. The former Man United & Real Madrid midfielder had been linked with a possible move to PSG and was the subject of possible interest from Premier League sides QPR and Tottenham but the 36 year old has instead opted to remain with the club he steered to an MLS Cup triumph last term.
“This was an important decision for me,” Beckham said in a statement.
“I had many offers from clubs from around the world, however, I’m still passionate about playing in America and winning trophies with the Galaxy.”
“I’ve seen first hand how popular soccer is now in the States and I’m as committed as ever to growing the game here,” Beckham said.
“My family and I are incredibly happy and settled in America and we look forward to spending many more years here.”
Beckham has notched up 81 appearances during an injury prone spell at the Home Depot Center, providing 28 assists and 12 goals for the MLS side. He was joined by Robbie Keane last year and whilst team-mate Landon Donovan has been loaned out to Everton, the American international will also be returning to the LA Galaxy for the coming season as they look to retain their MLS crown.
