David Beckham is in high demand from clubs following the announcement of his departure from LA Galaxy. 

Beckham has sparked interest from Brazilian clubs Corinthians and Flamengo, Chinese clubs, Australia's A-League, Paris Saint Germain, West Ham and former club Real Madrid, with the latter reportedly hoping to lure him back to Spain in an ambassadorial role. 

Although many had suspected that Beckham's departure from Galaxy would coincide with the announcement of his retirement from professional football, the 37-year-old is adamant that he will continue to play the sport that he remains the most recognisable face of.

Speaking to the press he said: “Retirement is something that I’m not thinking about yet. I still feel that I have something left in me. I still feel that I’d like to take on another challenge. What that will be, I honestly don’t know. I have a number of exciting opportunities on the table.”

West Ham's Sam Allardyce has stated that he would like to bring Beckham back to England, saying: "Yes, I would like to see a fit David Beckham at West Ham, but he would need to come and do a fitness test like any other player." However, Beckham has previously said that he would not wish to have to face his former club Manchester United, which may rule out a return to the Premier League.

It has been predicted that Beckham's next transfer could see him netting £20million a year – a massive £200,000 a week. While it is uncertain whether his next venture will be in Europe, Asia, South America or Australia, we can but hope that we'll get to him play on English shores once more before he hang up those golden boots.
