Former Man United says he has exciting offers on the table.
David Beckham has received several “exciting” offers to continue playing after his Los Angeles Galaxy career ends on Saturday, and has refused to rule out making a return to the Premier League.
The 37-year-old will end six seasons in Major League Soccer when he appears in the MLS Cup final against Houston, and several clubs are understood to have made offers to sign the former Manchester United and Real Madrid player.
Beckham, a target for the new Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp, said that while he felt a move back to English football was unlikely, he was considering several options.
“I’m lucky because at 37 years old, I’ve been offered some exciting options,” he told Sky. “I’ve got quite a few offers on the table.
“I’ve always said I think I would struggle to come back and play in England because I’ve played for the biggest club in the world, the biggest club in England, Manchester United, and I couldn’t see myself playing for any other Premiership team.
“But you never know. Like I said, we’ve got some exciting options on the table. I do think we’ll be spending a little more time in England because it’s good for the kids to see their grandparents.
“I’ve spent a couple of months with Harry when I was training at Tottenham. He doesn’t have to say the things that he says so it’s nice that he talks about me in such a nice way.”
So does this leave the door open to a QPR approach? A move to London may well interest David Beckham and could perhaps signal a return to the capital for his wife and family.
The Leytonstone born midfielder may feel that a move to the Premier League could trump more financially rewarding offers from both Chinese side and even Australian sides and clearly money is not an issue for the ludicrously wealthy England man.
A move to the English top tier would be a statement of intent and could be the former Man United man’s chance to show he still has the ability to play at the highest level, it could also perhaps lead to a return to the national team fold.
