LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham admits he’s excited at the prospect of playing former club Real Madrid in a pre-season friendly this summer.

The La Liga champions will travel to America as part of their pre-season preparations for the 2012/13 campaign, and will face the Galaxy on August 2nd as part of the ‘World Football Challenge’.

Beckham, who still has hope of making the Team GB Olympic squad after playing in-front of manager Stuart Pearce against the New York Red Bulls over the weekend, believes the arrival of Los Blancos could generate huge interest amongst the MLS fans in the summer.

"When you play in big games against big teams with great players involved it's different, there is a different buzz around the stadium - especially with the likes of Kaka, Cristiano and the other great players that they've got throughout their team - it's special,” said the former England international captain.

“Having Jose Mourinho come here is always special. So it is going to be a great night."

Beckham started his career with Manchester United, but after a decade with the Red Devils moved to the Spanish capital for a fee believed to be in the region of £25 million.

He spent four seasons with Madrid, winning his only domestic title in his final year with the club before moving Stateside on a free transfer. He has since spent five seasons at the Home Depot Centre, winning the MLS Cup last season.
