United icon set for 'compelling offer'

Published Add your comment

LA Galaxy remain confident they can keep former Manchester United star David Beckham at the Home Depot Center after his contract expires.

The 36-year-old's five-year deal with the Galaxy ends in December and speculation is rife that he may return to Europe.

Reports suggest Beckham will join nouveau-riche French outfit Paris Saint-Germain, although the former United hero says he would consider a role at Old Trafford.

Amid suggestions he could join United in a position as sporting director, Beckham stated he would be interested in a return to his former club.

However, this would appear unlikely at this stage of his career, although rejoining United could be on the cards in the future.

For now, however, Beckham wants to continue playing - and Galaxy are ready to battle to keep the midfielder in the MLS.


“If we give them a compelling offer we think we’re as good a shot as anybody," Galaxy president Tom Payne told the Herald Sun.

“We’re working on that, it’s a work in progress. He loves LA, his family’s entrenched there and they just had another baby, they love where they live, they love the beach life.

“I’d put my company up against anybody when it comes to trying to get people or players. We just got Robbie Keane and a lot of other clubs talking to him."
