Beckham tipped for move to Australia
Paddy Power have made Melbourne Heart their 5/2 favourites to capture the signature of David Beckham following the former England international’s announcement that he will leave LA Galaxy next month for “One last challenge”.
Down under looks by far the most likely destination for Beckham with Melbourne’s fellow A-League sides Perth Glory and Central Coast Mariners also amongst the favourites at 5/1 and 10/1 respectively.
Elsewhere in the betting it’s 4/1 for the former Man United man to follow in the footsteps of Didier Drogba and play in China and it’s 10/1 for Becks to pop up in the well travelled footballing retirement home known as the Middle East.
Russian moneybags Anzhi Makhachkala are an outside shot at 20/1 along with AC Milan, Celtic and DC United while a reunion with Sir Alex Ferguson is at an even less likely 33/1.
A spokesperson for Paddy Power told Football Betting News: “Beckham’s superstar status makes him an attractive target for any ambitious club in Australia, China or the Middle East and there’s little doubt that wherever Goldenballs ends up he’s likely to shine.”
