Manchester United legend David Beckham is set to skip the A-League.

Beckham has announced he is leaving LA Galaxy after the MLS Cup final and has been linked with a move to Australia.

While discussing his future in the most oblique terms, Beckham only confirmed he won't move to New York or any other MLS team.

The Daily Mail says that the 'challenge' will not be in Australia, despite the interest of five A-League clubs.

"If David goes to Australia it will only be on his holidays," said a source close to the player.
