David Beckham has not played in the EPL since the 2002-03 season with Manchester United, but after stints at Real Madrid and the Los Angeles Galaxy, the English-born midfielder may be headed back to the most powerful club league in the world.
David Gold, a co-owner of West Ham United in the greater London area said he believes it would be a “fantastic statement” to sign David Beckham. “He was an ambassador for the London 2012 bid and it would be a fantastic statement if he came to us.”
This would be a great professional statement by Beckham, who was written off by fans of the EPL a few years back, but will now have the chance to prove what he can do among the world’s best.
But looming large is the potential of a huge money deal from a Chinese team who is offering to pay Beckham a whopping fee of over £1 million per month to join, a deal he has not turned down yet.
Beckham had been linked to a possible move to French club Paris Saint Germain, but manager Carlo Ancelotti said, “We have not made any further offer. Our interest is over. We wish him well. Our spending is over.”
Beckham announced early in the week that he would be leaving the Galaxy after their MLS Cup Championship game on Dec. 1 in Los Angeles. If his team wins, his would be Beckham’s second league Championship with the North American side in as many seasons.
