Beckham looking beyond final year of MLS deal
Los Angeles: David Beckham plans to play out the final year of his contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy in 2011 while also hoping to play for England again. Beckham said that he did not know what would happen after his Galaxy contract expired next year but that he wanted to play soccer “as long as my legs can take me.”
Beckham has a five-year contract with Major League Soccer worth USD 32.5 million. He could buy out the final year and leave next month when the playoffs end. But he said his family was happy living in Los Angeles and that he could not see them moving.
Beckham, 35, said he was “80 to 85 percent” fit after tearing his Achilles’ tendon while playing on loan with A.C. Milan in March. The injury sidelined him for six months, costing him any chance to play for England at the World Cup in South Africa.
