LA Galaxy to take Beckham back to Premiership

Galaxy have already lined up a lucrative friendly in Australia.

And Tim Leiweke, chief executive and president of the Anschutz Entertainment Group - who own LA Galaxy, said further games in England are planned.

He said: "It's more than likely we're going to take a trip over to 'Jolly Old' England and do a game or two."

He said: "I think the greatest opportunity for the Galaxy is touring and doing international matches.

"I don't think it is six million dollars a game but I think it could be a pretty good percentage of that.

"And if you can do six games a year that can add a significant amount of value to the team and its revenue."

"We have the Australian dates locked," he added.

"We have a couple of dates in the US that we're going to do and we're mindful of giving David some rest so we're trying to be a little focused on making sure we don't overload the schedule this year.

"We're still focused on training in Asia and doing games there next year at the beginning of the season."
