David Beckham may only yesterday have been feted for his “lifetime” of sporting achievements but today is another day. To put it rather bluntly, Beckham has gradually realized that he’s some way better than his current standard in the MLS with the Los Angeles Galaxy and has today reiterated his desire to come back to Europe.
Rumours are that he’s been unable to adapt to the language constraints over in the US after mistakenly thinking they actually speak a different language. He’s also rather worried about his kids growing up over there and becoming rather fat. It isn’t much better back over in the UK, Dave.
Obviously Milan and Manchester will be high up on the list of places he may end up but is he not still trying to take football to new places? I mean, how better for Qatar to announce them on the world scene than signing the great man up?
Ladbrokes and William Hill are both offering books on where Beckham will end up, if anywhere.
Alex Donohue at Ladbrokes said: “After several lines of enquiry being opened by English clubs, namely Leicester, Everton and Spurs we think there is a good chance Beckham will return to England for a brief loan stint. We can’t rule out a sensational return to Spain, presumably to play for Real, nor a repeat of his time at AC. We know however that the loan move could be dictated as much by shopping facilities if Posh decides to join him leaving Milan and Madrid understandably ahead of the East Midlands or Merseyside.”
Graham Sharpe of William Hill has a slightly look out on it, with one club as favourite.
“Love or hate Becks he is impossible to ignore and he is bound to want to bow out of club football with a European flourish of some kind, and we make Spurs the 4/1 most likely next home for him as a player,” he said.
If anything’s clear it’s that Becks is still utmost in the affections of all those in the UK, and any team to sign him will see a significant boost in all revenues related to the club.
