David Beckham is discussing the possibility of playing in the Australian A-League.
The Football Federation Australia (FFA) confirmed today that it is in the early stages of discussions with the 37-year-old LA Galaxy player, after being approached by his agent.
"The approach from David Beckham’s people is another sign of how much the Hyundai A-League has grown in stature on a global basis,” an FFA spokesman said.
"Beckham is superstar on the world stage and he would be another massive signing for the Hyundai A-League after the arrivals of Alessandro Del Piero, Emile Heskey and Shinji Ono."
