After being spotted in the stands at Old Trafford during the Arsenal vs Manchester United games renewed belief that the Prince of Manchester Football- David Beckham will be returning to the Theatre of Dreams to ply his trade in a loan spell.
Becks said in an interview that he still hopes to join a European club on loan during the Major League Soccer offseason to keep his hopes of playing for England alive. The 35-year-old footballing genius and man-crush recipient has spent the last two winters at AC Milan but the Los Angeles Galaxy is reluctant to send him out on loan again after he injured an Achilles’ tendon while playing in Italy in March.
But now Beckham is looking to keep playing during the winter in the hopes that England coach Fabio Capello may recall him for the first time since he was injured ahead of the World Cup.
“I won’t be going back to AC Milan this time because is not possible to go onto the roster for such a short length of time,” said the Old Trafford Prince. “But I will be going back somewhere as I want to keep myself fit and keep myself in with a chance of getting called up for England again. To do that, I have to be somewhere so fingers crossed I can sort something out.”
Beckham has made 115 appearances for England – the most for an outfield player.
Becks is sticking by his earlier sentiments- saying that the only Premier League team he would consider playing for was Manchester United, which he left in 2003 to join Real Madrid.
“It is a great league and one of the most competitive in the world,” Beckham said of England’s top flight. “Maybe one day I will come back here but I have always said that it will only be for Manchester United. I am not holding my breath on that one, but we will have to wait and see.”
Beckham has one season remaining on his five-year $32.5 million contract with the Galaxy and has said he has no plans to buy out the final year of the deal.
Come on Fergie… Sign him up!!!! Just imagine the quality of his crosses for Berba & Rooney to finish off… Scholes, Anderson & Beckham in the middle???!!! YES PLEASE.
