Spurs return for ex-United star - reports

Next Story

Tottenham Hotspur are once again being linked with a move for LA Galaxy superstar David Beckham.

The former Manchester United midfielder has been heavily linked with a return to England in November, when the ex-England skipper's contract in the MLS expires.

Beckham has previously stated that it would be difficult to join a Barclays Premier League club other than Manchester United, given his affection for the club, but that hasn't stopped teams from being linked with the player.

Spurs are well-placed to make a move, having built up a relationship with the player last year when Beckham spent time training with the White Hart Lane outfit in the American off-season.

The Daily Mirror claims that Harry Redknapp remains a big-fan of the free-kick specialist, and is keen to add experience to the Spurs ranks ahead of a grueling campaign that will include the Europa League.

Following the arrival of Emmanuel Adebayor, the Tottenham Hotspur chief also wants to add a player with proven crossing ability, and Beckham would undoubtedly fit the bill.

Competition will be fierce for the marketing dream though, with QPR owner Tony Fernandes admitting he would love to have the player in their ranks.

"I think having someone like David in the club would be great. Was always in my thoughts," Fernandes said on Twitter.

The quotes come just a day after Amit Bhatia, vice-chairman vice-chairman of QPR Holdings, said there was no truth in the speculation.


Neil Warnock has already been questioned on the matter though, and believes nothing can be written off given the direction the Hoops are moving at Loftus Road.

"About three weeks ago I would not have dreamed to sign Joey Barton so I will never write anything off," the QPR boss told The Daily Telegraph.

"The chairman Tony Fernandes has got such [an opinion] - why accept the average when you can reach for the top? That is how he is.

"It came out of the blue. I think anything is possible. He is a very astute businessman."

Whilst the dream scenario for Beckham would be a Manchester United return, it appears highly-unlikely Sir Alex Ferguson will make a move for the veteran.
