Man City May Offer David Beckham A Lifeline

Man City May Offer David Beckham A Lifeline

Google language translator

With the Major League Soccer (MLS) season drawing to a close, LA Galaxy and England midfielder David Beckham is on the lookout for a Premier League club to see him out until April. Do you think Manchester City would come to the rescue and allow the 33-year-old ex United star train with the City players.

Beckham is eager to keep himself fit throughout the MLS close season in preparation for the next round of international World Cup qualifiers beginning in April 2009. Unless he is match fit, there is no way England boss Fabio Capello would ever consider him for the Ukraine game scheduled to take place at Wembley on April 1.

David has no plans to hang up his international boots just yet; on the contrary, he wants to collect Cap number 108.

Conclusion

With no competitive football in the offering, would Manchester City boss and ex teammate Mark Hughes consider taking Beckham on a six-month loan deal?

6months... am not sure how i feel about this lol, maybe if some of the guys learn to take free kicks from him it might be worth it. I guess the business aspect is that moves like this raise profile internationally.

Signing "Him"certainly wouldn't fit in with City's mainly youth focused Academy and transfer policy. Definitely teh sort of signing the Thai's would have pursued, but surely not Sheikh Mansour.

I can think of very few things that would cause more damage to the prestige of the new Manchester City under Hughes and Sheikh Mansour. The words "laughing" and "stock" occur to me. We may as well send an email to the agent of every "past it" superstar in the world that there's a comfortable living to be made at City. The last time a top-tier club went really big on recruiting the players in the "October" of their career was Southampton under McMenemy. Lawrie made an art form of it, Allardyce was just a scribbler. Having said that Stoke City had kept themselves going for a long time by recruiting good players in their "November" years. But that's years ago. And no top club in the world does that now. Take on players at their height maybe, but over the hill is a definite no! And that is before we look at the rest of the Beckham package and his years shovelling manure over at the swamp.
