AS Monaco coach Claudio Ranieri has admitted interest in Manchester United legend David Beckham.

The departing LA Galaxy star will continue his career in Europe, with PSG, QPR and West Ham United all keen.

Ranieri said: "One can consider it as unrealistic as my presence in Monaco. He maintains his passion for football and that's what interests me.

"He would be helpful in all aspects of the club's development. He could share his passion with our young players. As a 37-year-old he will have plenty to offer and is professional. All young players need an experienced coach, but also teammates in the locker room."
