The former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson has revealed that he will be looking to sign the former England international David Beckham after taking over as the technical advisor of the Middle Eastern club Al Nasr. Sven Goran Eriksson has signed an 18 month contract with the club. Immediately after taking over, he was revealed that he will be looking to bring in the former Manchester United, Real Madrid, and AC Milan midfielder David Beckham. Beckham is currently available on a free transfer after leaving LA Galaxy at the end of the season. He has revealed that he will be taking a decision on his future soon.
There have been no shortage of offers for the 37-year-old despite coming to the end of his career. He has been linked with several high-profile clubs in the world like Monaco and PSG. However, the riches on offer at Al Nasr may be able to persuade the midfielder to join the Middle East club according to Eriksson. He also has good relationships with Beckham after making him the captain while he was the manager of the England national team. Aside from identifying the transfer targets, Eriksson will also be working with the youth teams as well. Eriksson, meanwhile, has said that he has not been working in brief spells just for the money.
“If he wants to come I’m sure they would open the gates for him. I still speak with him, although I don’t know where he will finish up. I can promise you the jobs with Ivory Coast, in Thailand and here are not for the money. Absolutely not. It’s for a love of football, seeing new parts of the world and a new football league,” said the former England manager. Beckham has also been linked with a move to QPR as well.
