Queens Park Rangers want to sign Beckham

London: Queens Park Rangers (QPR) football club`s new owner Tony Fernandes is planning to sign former England football star David Beckham.

The Malaysian tycoon reckons it will help Becks` Olympic dream and wants him at Loftus Road as soon as his MLS season ends with LA Galaxy.

According to reports, Fernandes believes Beckham will be tempted by the promise of regular first-team football in the run-up to the London extravaganza.

Beckham, now 36, has made no secret of the fact he wants to play in the 2012 Games.

And Fernandes knows Becks will not come cheap, but believes shirt sales and other merchandising will more than cover the cost of bringing him to West London.

The player`s Galaxy deal expires at the end of the season.
