Tottenham are in ‘pole position’ to sign David Beckham, according to the Daily Mirror, with the midfielder planning to move to a club that can challenge for top honours both domestically and throughout Europe.
Paris Saint Germain were reportedly close to doing a deal with Beckham when his contract runs out at LA Galaxy, but the star is hoping to get a mention for the 2012 Olympics Great Britain side, and is planning on playing for a top team to show his worth.
Tottenham have long been connected with Beckham, and tried to sign the 36-year-old in January. The deal fell through due to insurance issues, but Redknapp has maintained that if Beckham were to express an interest in heading to White Hart Lane, he would be welcomed with open arms.
“David’s a fantastic player and a great influence in and around the club. He’s someone that I have always admired and is a great role model,” Redknapp recently said.
“I would take him, for sure but my dilemma is being able to guarantee him first-team football.
“I have an abundance of talent in midfield so it’s difficult to work out how and when I can play him.”
While Beckham will face competition for a place on the Tottenham side, he plans on working hard to get his chance again in the Barclays Premier League.
And Tottenham will be pleased to bring the England international on board, along with his ability to attract fans from around the world.
