Real Madrid have on Monday approached David Beckham´s advisers and Los Angeles Galaxy in an attempt to buy the England midfielder out of his contract with the American club.

The Spanish club contacted Beckham´s camp and the Galaxy after president Ramon Calderon spoke of exploiting a possible escape clause in his contract to try to keep him in Madrid.

It is understood however that Real were told "politely but firmly" that no such clause exists - and that there is no chance of Beckham changing his mind.
