David Beckham is still deciding whether he will be fit enough, or still wants to play, in the American MLS when his contract runs out with LA Galaxy at the end of this year.

“Yeah, you know, there's a chance," Beckham told LA Galaxy's official website when asked if he would continue playing for LA.

"I haven't made any decision about what I'm going to do after this year.”

Beckham said that age would definitely be a factor in his decision to stay on, though he hopes it isn’t the reason he has to quit.


"At the end of the day, I am 35 years old, I'll be 36 in May and I'm getting older, so I'll need to see how my body feels at the end of the season, and if I feel that I can perform and continue, then I will continue.

"In a few months I will think about what I want to do.

"I still love the game like I did when I was 21 years old and I still feel fit. I look after myself."

The MLS season started in February, and with LA Galaxy having played five games and sitting at third on the western conference, Beckham still has a lot of work ahead of him before his contract runs out.

But the superstar says that the motivation of possibly playing in the Olympics is a good goal to set to keep match fit for LA Galaxy.

“I think that the Olympics are something that I’d like to be involved in and that I’d like to be involved in as a player,” he said.
