Beckham had Premier League options

Published Add your comment

David Beckham has revealed he turned down offers from Premier League clubs to stay with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The former England captain's five-year contract with the Major League Soccer side expired last month and he had been linked with various clubs, including former club Manchester United and their Premier League rivals Tottenham, before signing a new two-year deal in California.

He said: "I was offered the chance (to return to the Premier League), yes, but I'm happy here so that was a major factor in my decision - my family, my children, and playing for the Galaxy. That was what I was passionate about."
