LA Galaxy star Beckham plays down Monaco interest – ‘I have other exciting options’

David Beckham has made it clear that he is not about to join French club AS Monaco.

The LA Galaxy star has been linked with a number of clubs – including Paris Saint-Germain, QPR and West Ham United – since he announced this weekend’s MLS Cup final will be his last MLS appearance and although he is grateful to have interest from Monaco, he has indicated that there are plenty of other options.

"I heard about Monaco on the way to training this morning from a friend in London who said 'I hear you are going to Monaco'. That was the first I'd heard of that," said Beckham.

"I've got some interesting and exciting options on the table.

"I am very flattered by some of the options that I've got. I still feel I can play and I'm not considering retiring.

"I've still got managers like Carlo Ancelotti and Harry Redknapp and Sam Allardyce coming out that are saying they'd love me to play and they know how professional I am, it means a lot to me.

"It is what I have tried to base my career around, over the years, being professional and working hard, so it's nice to be recognised like that.

"I do believe I still have got another challenge inside, that I can still play for, I don't know how many years left. I do still feel I can play."
