FFA confirm Beckham ready to quit LA Galaxy for move Down Under

Football Federation Australia has confirmed talks with Manchester United and Real Madrid legend David Beckham about an A-League move. Beckham comes off contract with LA Galaxy at the end of the MLS playoffs and is eager to extend his playing career - potentially Down Under.

Discussions are at an early stage and FFA is exploring the options available.

"The approach from David Beckham's people is another sign of how much the Hyundai A-League has grown in stature on a global basis," said an FFA spokesman.

"Beckham is superstar on the world stage and he would be another massive signing for the Hyundai A-League after the arrivals of Alessandro Del Piero, Emile Heskey and Shinji Ono. But this approach remains at a very preliminary stage."

An early contender for Beckham's services is defending champs Brisbane Roar.
