With former Manchester United midfielder David Beckham set to come to an end to his LA Galaxy deal this winter, it seems that the former English international could be offered the chance to try to break back into the national side, while playing in the Premier League.
Recent reports have shown that Premier League new boys QPR are wanting to speak with the right sided midfielder as they hope to lure the English legend back to the top flight in English football but today further interest has been announced.
According to news sources today, Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is set to offer Beckham a new alternative in the player’s bid to try to force selection for the Olympics 2012 competition, saying that he is interested in bringing the former Man United and Real Madrid player to White Hart Lane.
Beckham is known to be desperate to be considered for a place in the Great Britain squad that will be entered into the London 2012 Olympics and is thought to be seeking a move that would enable him to show that he can still perform at the highest level in English football.
With reports claiming that Redknapp has shown an interest in signing the 36 year old, Spurs still look second favourites at the moment to sign the player after it was revealed that QPR owner Tony Fernandes has already contacted the player’s representatives in a bid to secure the player’s services in January.
A move to Tottenham would be a better option for the former English international as it would give him the chance to play for a side that are now considered to be one of the top four clubs in the English game and boss Harry Redknapp has issued his support for the move, saying “If David wants to come to Tottenham, I would welcome him with open arms.”
Questions have been asked over the ability of Beckham to still shine in the top flight in English football but that is not a concern for Redknapp, the outspoken boss saying that he knows that Beckham is “definately still good enough to play in the Premier League.”
With Redknapp known to be interested in adding a new wide midfielder to his squad, the Spurs boss also pointed out that Beckham would fit in well at the club, saying that his game has never been about pace or flair but more about “his ability to pick out a player with a pinpoint pass.”
Redknapp is still to make contact with the Beckham camp over the move but it is widely reported that Redknapp is speaking to the Spurs board in a bid to have those negotiations put into action, adding that Beckham would be the ideal rolemodel to younger players that are developing within the White Hart Lane ranks.
