Madrid want Beckham return
Thursday 22 November 2012
Real Madrid are hoping David Beckham will return to Spain once he has finished his playing career, according to the Daily Mirror. Florentino Perez, the president of the La Liga club, is said to be a “huge admirer” of the ex-England midfielder.
Beckham, who spent four years at the Santiago Bernabeu, would be joining his old teammate Zinedine Zidane in working behind the scenes at Real Madrid. Perez, who signed Beckham for £25m in 2003, is eager to have him back in “an ambassadorial role.”
The former England captain’s stay in Madrid saw him win the Supercopa de Espana in his first season and in his last season and last game for the club, win the Spanish league title. A hard-fought league contest won ultimately due to Real Madrid’s better head-to-head record against Barcelona, who finished second.
According to the Mirror, several clubs are hoping to snare Beckham’s signature with strong interest from teams in France, China, Brazil, Australia and England. West Ham, one of the teams closest to Beckham’s birthplace in East London, appear keen, with manager Sam Allardyce recently admitting as much.
