View Full Version : Transfer Gossip: Spurs eye Beckham bid

22nd April '09, 03:07 PM
Life has a funny habit of repeating itself and if the latest rumours are to be believed, David Beckham (http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/football/david-beckham.html) could be going home.

Beckham left Tottenham Hotspur (http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/football/tottenham-hotspur/)'s academy to sign for Manchester United (http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/football/manchester-united/) on his 14th birthday and the rest, as they say, is history.
The North London club are reportedly preparing a bid to steal the record-breaking England (http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/football/england/) midfielder from under the noses of Milan when his loan at the San Siro expires in the summer.
The Sun points to Spurs boss Harry Redknapp's fondness for resurrecting the careers of veteran players.
It also argues that Tottenham's ability to put the LA Galaxy man squarely in the vision of England manager Fabio Capello ahead of the 2010 World Cup will sway the former Real Madrid man.
GS doubts it though. Any move to Spurs will only happen if Milan decide not to sign him as it is unlikely that he would choose Spurs over the Rossoneri.
Milan are by far the bigger club, will be playing in the Champions League next season and the slower pace in Italy suits Beckham's game perfectly.
They are also unlikely to let him go after a series of impressive performances helped fire Milan to second in Serie A, not to mention the inevitable spike in shirt sales.
Furthemore, Capello is more than happy that Beckham is plying his trade at his beloved Milan, not least because it keeps him away from the distracting media hysteria he faces in England - and saves his legs from a shoeing at the hands of Emanuel Pogatetz (http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/football/emanuel-pogatetz.html).



I hope he does come to Tottenham

I'd welcome it on one hand, on the other anything that stops Lennon developing is bad.

It would be good if he was happy with 30 minutes at the end like he is with England.

Hold tight silly season, swear this comes up every season same with Downing people just put 1+1 together, why are we gonna sign Beckham when we have Lennon?? Would rather have had Malbranque still here, he's a good player still.
