- David Beckham, Loan, Manchester United
This just seems about right. Each year since David Beckham joined the LA Galaxy and Major League Soccer it seems around December or so he’s looking for a winter/spring loan back to Europe. Most people thought this year would be different since his last loan back in Europe didn’t go so well as it ended in a nasty Achilles tendon injury with AC Milan.
Well with his health back to normal, Becks is saying he wants another go in Europe this winter to stay fit for the English national team.
This time however he won’t be headed back to Italy with Milan but likely back to where it all began for him with Manchester United. Beckham had turned down some other offers with Everton insisting the only EPL side he would want to return to would be ManU.
The Galaxy aren’t exactly holding him back this time around. Him going off for a loan spell in England would likely free up some cap space that would be very much needed for the club who seems like they are willing to spend as much as it takes this year to win another title.
I can’t say I’m totally shocked to hear that Becks wants to go back this winter and probably the spring to play in Europe. He’s in the final year of his MLS/Galaxy contract and the has actually done better without him over the years. Freeing up some space for half of the season could help get Juan Pablo Angel and Frankie Hejduk on board. How LA does their salary cap is still a mystery to most within and around the league. This should be an interesting story to see play out.
