Beckham: ‘To win gold for Britain would be the ultimate for me’

David Beckham has admitted he is “amazed” by the number of offers he has had and believes he can play on until he is 40. Becks is weighing up where to continue his remarkable career when the MLS season ends on November 20.

In an interview with Telegraph Sport, he said he was seriously considering staying with Los Angeles Galaxy but that if he did move, he would insist that any club he joins gives him a regular starting place so he can realize his ambition of leading the British team to gold in next year’s Olympics. 

Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City are among the clubs who have shown interest in the 36 year-old, but Beckham revealed there have been several other enquiries.

“What will actually happen next I still can’t say, but what is very important in the decision in terms of what I do, be it staying here, or going to PSG or wherever, is that I get enough time on the pitch because I want to be part of the Olympics. “I’ve made no secret of that. Even to be in the team would be incredible. To be part of that Olympic spirit and to be able to win gold for Britain would be the ultimate goal for me.
