David Beckham: 6 Possibilities for Becks After Los Angeles Galaxy Contract

0 of 6

    After this MLS season ends in November, David Beckham will be out of contract at the LA Galaxy. He has stated his desire to stay in the US after his Galaxy contract is up but he also constantly talks about how much he misses England.

    The following is a list of potential options for Becks after this season.

Beckham To Sign Back Up with the Galaxy

    Yes, 36-year-old Beckham will be out of contract in November after the MLS season ends. Everyone knows that Posh loves LA and I'm sure kids Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and now baby girl Harper prefer the Southern California sunshine to gloomy old England.

    And for the kids sake, there is no Justin Bieber in England—only in LA, David. Only in LA. Is that enough to keep him playing for the Galaxy? It could be.

Staying in LA, but Not with the Galaxy: Chivas It Is!

    So if the lure of Southern California is enough to keep the Beckham family in LA, why would Becks sign on with the Galaxy again? Who knows? Maybe he wants to try his luck elsewhere.

    Historically, Beckham and Landon Donovan have not been the best of friends and this could push Becks away to catch the spotlight all by himself at the Galaxy's crosstown rival: Chivas USA. This is a place that David could go and be a giant star all by himself.

    It all comes down to this: How much of an egomaniac is he?

Beckham to the New York Red Bulls

    It could be that Becks has had it with LA but not with the US. There is plenty of incentive to join up with the Red Bulls. Thierry Henry has made the move and the Red Bulls are constantly being linked with older, formerly great players.

    Becks could be planning to build an MLS All-Star team of retiring superstars—only time will tell.

Beckham to Tottenham

    This last January, David Beckham trained with London-based club Tottenham Hotspur. During this time, both Beckham and Tottenham wanted to reach a loan agreement but the Galaxy wouldn't allow it.

    Now, after his contract with the Galaxy is up, it would be the perfect time to make this an actuality and finally get the move back to his beloved England. He struck up a great relationship with Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp and the move could be his last way back into the England squad.

Beckham to Arsenal

    If a move to Tottenham doesn't work out, Becks could opt for a move to their derby rivals, Arsenal. Manager Arsene Wenger is a public fan of Beckham and Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere has made his opinion clear about wanting to take Becks to the Emirates.

    Beckham also trained with the Gunners back in 2008 during the MLS offseason. If a move to London is what Beckham seeks, don't forget about Arsenal.

Beckham To Retire

    Time could be up for the former Real Madrid and Manchester United man. The older he gets, the more injury-prone he is and Victoria has to be getting sick of it. I seriously doubt that Mrs. Beckham would let David move to Turkey or Thailand a la Robbie Fowler and Sir Alex Ferguson has no need for him at United.

    This could be the end of the road for David Beckham's playing career.
