QPR owner Tony Fernandes has spoken openly of his desire to sign David Beckham, but only if it is in the wider interests of the club.
The LA Galaxy star’s contract expires in November, and has intimated a desire to move back to England. Fernandes has now suggested that any possible deal to sign the former England captain would have to be evaluated financially.
“We have to look at each situation and evaluate if it makes good sense to the club," said Fernandes.
“There is no single policy at QPR, whether it’s David Beckham or Joey Barton or whoever.”
The Malaysian entrepreneur completed his takeover of the west London club this summer, and has already brought in a host of new players, including Joey Barton and Shaun Wright-Phillips.
The ambitions of the owner go beyond signing big names, and he is also talking about moving from their 18,000 capacity stadium Loftus Road, as well as introducing a long-term plan.
“The key is not just signings but delivering a good academy, a good scouting system, a good training facility,” he concluded.
If the tycoon was to make a bid for Beckham he would be facing competition from capital rivals Tottenham Hotspur, whose manager Harry Redknapp has declared he would love to have Beckham in his squad.
