DAVID BECKHAM TEMPTED WITH MONACO MOVE


Football superstar, David Beckham has revealed he has numerous offers to continue playing after his Los Angeles Galaxy career ends this weekend, with Monaco leading the chase, but the former England captain does not expect a return to the Barclays Premier League.

The 37-year-old will bring the curtain down on six seasons in Major League Soccer in Saturday's MLS Cup final against Houston, and clubs are already lining up to sign the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star.
French side AS Monaco have emerged as one of the favorites and negotiations are expected to take place after Saturday's cup final.

Monaco are in the the second tier of French football, Ligue 2, following their relegation from Ligue 1 in 2010.

But billionaire Russian businessman Dmitry Rybolovlev bought a majority stake in the club in December 2011, with ambitions to return them to the level they were at in 2004, when they were runners-up in the Champions League.

They are currently top of the league after 15 matches of the season.

But asked if a return to England was on the cards, the childhood United fan was more cautious.

'I've always said I think I would struggle to come back and play in England because I've played for the biggest club in the world, the biggest club in England, Manchester United, and I couldn't see myself playing for any other Premiership team.But billionaire Russian businessman Dmitry Rybolovlev bought a majority stake in the club in December 2011, with ambitions to return them to the level they were at in 2004, when they were runners-up in the Champions League.

Beckham's reluctance to return to England to play could disappoint new QPR boss Harry Redknapp, who is among those to have been linked with an offer for the midfielder.
