David Beckham may still go to Tottenham, but Spurs need to sign the superstar as soon as possible to warn off rival clubs, according to Goal.com.
Beckham’s contract with LA Galaxy runs out at the end of the MLS season, and numerous clubs in Europe have already made their interest clear, with Paris Satin Germain and QPR hopeful of a deal.
And while the former Manchester United midfielder has been coy on a move, he nearly signed with Tottenham last January, and now that the red tape is not a problem any more Spurs could tie up a deal as soon as possible.
Beckham admitted today that he was flattered by interest from Paris Saint Germain, alerting Tottenham to get working on a deal if they want him on board at White Hart Lane.
"I think it's really exciting. And there are great things happening in France, in several clubs. So it's an exciting time,” he said.
“I'm flattered that he [PSG sporting director Leonardo] wants me to come join him and the team in Paris. But I'm a Galaxy player. I live in Los Angeles, I am happy there and I play for them.
“I also like Leonardo, of course. I had a good relationship with him when I was in Milan the first time and also when he was manager the second time. He's a great athletic director, a wonderful person.”
It was thought that Beckham may not want to go to an English club on account of his allegiance with United, but after playing for AC Milan against United in the Champions League, he appears to be more open to the possibility of a move.
Tottenham are clearly the English front runners for the 36-year-old, with QPR admitting recently that if Beckham had the choice, he would make the move to Spurs.
