Beckham didn’t tip his hand about whether or not he’ll be back in LA next season. But speaking to the BBC recently, he did pretty much rule out a return to England.
The 36-year-old has offers from “a couple of big European clubs,” he says, and of course, the Galaxy has an offer on the table. (“He has the information he needs” from LA, coach Bruce Arena told ExtraTime Radio yesterday.)
So now it’s just a matter of him making up his mind.
But what about LA? What if they were to decide to move on? They could let Beckham go, along with the now retired Gregg Berhalter and possibly Jovan Kirovski and goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts, then use the freed-up cash to go get another marquee player.
Either way, the 2011 champs are in a solid position heading into 2012.
