ACCORDING to today’s Sunday papers, Leicester City are looking to bring David Beckham home from the States.
Goldenballs could team up with his former England boss Sven Goran Eriksson in the East Midlands, after the MLS season comes to a close.
The LA Galaxy midfielder has previously used the American close season to keep up fitness levels at AC Milan – and the Foxes’ owners have been pushing Eriksson to put in a cheeky bid for Becks to do the same with them this season.
A source close to the Championship side’s Thai owners said: “This time the Raksriaksorn family are going all out to get Sven to bring Beckham to Leicester. Even they have been overwhelmed at how big Leicester have become here in Asia.
“They are keen to maintain the momentum and, of course, grow the club.
“Sven is in touch with Beckham, the funding is in place and they hope a deal can be done that will suit both parties. It will be good for everyone.”
