Galaxy teammates expect Beckham to stay


Los Angeles Galaxy players are expecting David Beckham to stay with the club next season despite reports linking him with a move back to Europe, club captain Landon Donovan said on Tuesday.

Beckham’s five-year deal with the Galaxy concludes at the end of the current Major League Soccer campaign and there have been suggestion­s that Paris St. Germain and a number of English clubs are interested in signing the former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder.

Galaxy’s owners, however, have indicated a new deal may be on offer to the 36-year-old Beckham, who has kept his intentions close to his chest and refused to discuss his future until the end of the MLS season.

But, in an interview with the American radio station AM 570, Donovan said the Galaxy squad expected the former England captain would be around next season.
