Beckham will not bid for Galaxy
David Beckham will not be buying American football club LA Galaxy but is expected to consider offers from Major League Soccer sides in the New Year.
Beckham's advisors have denied there is any chance of the player buying shares in the US team, even though he has a football academy in Los Angeles and the team’s billionaire owner, Phillip Anschutz, owns the Millennium Dome, home of Beckham’s London academy.
But Beckham is expected to talk to MLS teams and Premiership sides in January, with his Real contract running out next summer.
Beckham may today get his first game for Real Madrid for almost a month as they take on Athletic Bilbao at the Bernabeu. He returned to the squad yesterday after missing three games with a knee injury and, although not back to full fitness, he will be on the substitutes’ bench and is likely to make an appearance.
Real and Beckham say they want to extend the contract, although it is thought the player will not commit himself until he is sure he is in coach Fabio Capello’s plans.
Beckham will travel to the Ukraine next week for a Champions League game against Dinamo Kiev and, with Real already qualified, he may start the game in a bid to help him back to full match fitness.
But the real test of whether he has won over Capello will come next weekend, when Real travel to second-placed Sevilla.
