David Beckham is to speak with Monaco as he prepares for the next step in his career as his time in the MLS with LA Galaxy comes to an end, the BBC
Beckham announced earlier this month that he would leave Los Angeles at the end of the season and has been linked with a host of clubs across the world, including Paris Saint-Germain, managed by Beckham’s former Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti. Monaco are currently in the French second division, Ligue 2, but are top of the table, making a reunion with Ancelotti a distinct possibility for next season.
Monaco are managed by Claudio Ranieri, formerly of Chelsea, Juventus and Roma, amongst others, and top Ligue 2 via goals scored, sitting level on points and goal difference with Nantes with 15 games of the season played. Nantes won the only meeting between the sides so far this season and the head-to-head record will come into play if the teams are still level at the end of the campaign.
Beckham has spoken of wanting another challenge before retirement, while Monaco chief executive Tor-Kristian Karlsen said: “We are happy with our current squad. But if there’s a chance to get a player of Beckham’s stature, we’d be foolish not to explore it.”
