Beckham unlikely to return to England

"I couldn't see myself playing in another English shirt"

David Beckham believes he is unlikely to return to England but has admitted to interest from “big European clubs” following the conclusion of his LA Galaxy contract.

Beckham’s contract with the MLS side expires at the end of December and the former England captain could be tempted to move back to Europe to finish his career. However, he does not believe that a move to an English club is on the cards.

“I played for the biggest club in England and couldn't see myself playing in another English shirt,” he said.

“I've got options, which is amazing at my age,” added the former Manchester United midfielder. “A couple of big European clubs are after me.

“I have a decision to make and I haven't made it yet.”

The 36-year-old could, however, still opt to stay in LA where his family is understood to have settled since moving there in 2007. He signed off his current contract by winning the MLS Cup at the weekend but could yet play on in the US.

“I might still be here next year playing,” he said. “I need to sit down with friends and family and decide what's best for me.”

Paddy Power currently make Paris Saint-Germain the 4/9 favourites in their betting market for David Beckham’s next club. And offer odds of 2/1 that he re-signs for LA Galaxy.

Tottenham, QPR and Arsenal are thought to lead the way for the English clubs but are priced as outsiders at odds of 10/1, 10/1 and 16/1 respectively.
