David Beckham has announced he will leave Los Angeles Galaxy next month after six years of playing in the United States. The 37 year old, who has played for Manchester United, Real Madrid and AC Milan, has said that he wants to experience one last challenge before the end of his playing career.
There were rumours last week that Beckham might move to Australia's A-League, with club Melbourne Heart saying they are in talks with the player over a ten game stint down under. When asked at the club's training ground, he was quick to dismiss the suggestion.
"Yeah, Bruce told me that this morning...it was the first I heard about it...(somebody jokingly saying that they bought his ticket)...like I said this is the first I heard about it. But, it is definitely not true."
Beckham's last game for the Galaxy will be the MLS cup final on December 1st against Houston Dynamo. Since going to America in 2007 a whole host of star footballers have gone on to play in the states, including Robbie Keane, Tim Cahill and Thierry Henry.
