David Beckham would consider a return to the Barclays Premier League - despite having said he would never play for an English side other than Manchester United.

The 34-year-old was speaking in California where he has returned to link up with the Los Angeles Galaxy after a spell in Serie A playing for AC Milan.

Beckham is desperate to play in next year's World Cup and admitted he would ponder a move back to his homeland if it would increase his chances, saying: "I would definitely consider it."

He added: "Never say never. When I left United, I said I would never want to play for another English club.

"My heart was in Manchester - and I couldn't see myself wearing another shirt in the Premiership and playing against United. Now I wouldn't rule it out."

More likely is a return to Milan, where he impressed then coach Carlo Ancelotti, now with Chelsea, with his fitness and professionalism.

"Obviously Milan expressed that they want me to go back, so I don't see any reason why that would change," he said.

"We'll have to wait and see. I hope to be going back there."

Meanwhile, Beckham has been making peace with Galaxy team-mate Landon Donovan, who recently questioned the midfielder's commitment.

Beckham had a meeting with Donovan and manager Bruce Arena on his return and said: "I'm not going to talk about what was said. That was between me, Landon and the manager but we had a good talk."
