England Transfer News — 01 December 2012

Former-England captain David Beckham plays his last game for MLS franchise LA Galaxy this evening.

His farewell appearance will come against Houston Dynamo in the MLS cup final and then he will embark on the next stage of his career.


At 37 years-old Beckham has stated that he is looking for a new challenge after six years in the USA. He is now very much in the veteran stage of career and it doesn’t look like he has much time of his playing career, so it will probably be his last challenge as a player.


David Beckham arriving in the MLS was a major marketing ploy by the organisation to attempt to raise the profile of the game within the USA and league worldwide. The league has grown significantly in the last six years and the move has definitely worked out well for all parties.

Beckham and his family are enjoying the lifestyle in Los Angeles and the midfielder has stated that he will retain his residence in the States and return once he has hung his boots up.


According to the man himself he has some very interesting options. According to reports in some British newspapers yesterday, Beckham’s representatives are in talks with French second tier side Monaco over a move.

The former-England star has also been linked with French nouvre riche outfit PSG. The option of a return to the Premier League also still seems available to him, with London clubs West Ham and QPR believed to be interested in acquiring his services.


Beckham endured a difficult first few years in the United States, but grew into the league and his stint in the MLS has to be considered a resounding success. David Beckham still has a lot to offer and it would be interesting to see if he could still cut-it at the highest level of the game, whether he will get that chance remains to be seen.

What next for David Beckham?
