As expected, David Beckham will be returning to the LA Galaxy next season after signing a new two-year contract with the MLS Club.

Beckham’s initial five-year deal ended after the former England captain helped the Galaxy win the MLS Cup in November last year – a victory that left the free-kick maestro with a major trophy from each of the clubs he has permanently signed for.

Following the end of his contract with the Galaxy, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star had been rumoured for a lucrative move to big-spending Paris Saint Germain.

But last month the French club announced he would not be joining them due to family reasons.

There had also been speculation of the 36-year-old joining numerous English topflight clubs but it appears a settled family, the opportunity to continue to help soccer grow in the United States and the sunshine of LA has won the day.
