Beckham in no rush to join new club

LONDON (AP) — Nearly a month after leaving the Los Angeles Galaxy, David Beckham is considering "a number of serious proposals" but is in no rush to find a new team.

He has been linked to clubs in France, Australia and Asia in what would be the final chapter of the illustrious career of the 37-year-old midfielder and former England captain.

A "host of clubs" have made offers, Beckham's management company said in a statement to The Associated Press on Thursday, but it remains "early days in the process."

"David is in no hurry to make a decision, the key is making the right one as he has always done successfully in his career," the statement said.

Beckham ended his five-year stint in the United States by helping the Galaxy win the MLS Cup on Dec. 1.

He has said it's unlikely he will return to the English Premier League, where he starred for Manchester United from 1993 to 2003. Beckham is also reported to have ruled out a move to Australia's A-League.

The French sports newspaper L'Equipe said Thursday that Monaco, an ambitious French second-division club, has ended talks with Beckham, although his advisers have refused to comment.

"David is enjoying spending quality time with his family over the holidays," his management company said.

Beckham has also played for Real Madrid in Spain and AC Milan on loan in Italy.
