Beckham looks to end American dream in style main image

David Beckham is nearing the end of his latest foreign adventure, but the former Manchester United midfielder could finish life in Los Angeles by realising his ultimate American dream. 

Having spent the last five years on America’s West coast, Beckham has yet to win a trophy with LA Galaxy but all that could change come November 20 as the Galaxy take on Houston Dynamo in the MLS final.

A host of European clubs are rumoured to be after the 36-year olds signature when his deal with LA runs out after the final with newly overtaken Paris St. Germain the most notable.

With impressive recent performances, including a show that threw onlookers back to days from his Premier League years in the Eastern Conference final versus Real Salt lake, Beckham looks to be a signing that would bring a touch of class as well as the biggest name in soccer.

He provided the cross for Mike Magee’s headed effort and was involved in the build-up to Robbie Keane’s goal, Galaxy’s third, during their 3-1 triumph over Salt Lake.

The news of his becoming a free agent following the culmination of the current MLS season has only fuelled an ever-growing fire as to where he will be playing his football come January.

Premier League new boys, Queens Park Rangers have indirectly declared an interest through an individual admiration from the club’s new owner, Tony Fernandes, although he has suggested that his newly-promoted side do not need the midfielder.

Beckham, though, has already hinted that a return to what many consider the best league in the world is unlikely.

But the former England captain has other things on his mind to deal with before any transfer negotiations: that of sealing a first MLS title with his Galaxy side.

“It is my number on priority,” said Beckham. “As a professional, you always want to be successful. I have done it for most of my career.

“It always means the same, whether it’s winning the MLS Cup, the European Cup or LaLiga. Every time you pick up the silverware it is the same.”

Beckham’s time in America may be up after this final but he could not ask for a better way to say goodbye than holding aloft the MLS trophy and making true the completion of his American dream.
