It seems we’ll have a special guest arriving at London Colney today Gooners. No, unfortunately it won’t be a new signing but the Daily Mail are one of several media outlets who’re reporting that David Beckham is set to begin training with the Arsenal squad on Tuesday.
The 37-year-old former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder is now a free agent after leaving LA Galaxy at the end of the MLS season in December, and the Mail claim he is due to arrive at Arsenal’s training base on Tuesday to train with the first team squad to maintain his fitness before deciding his next career move.
Becks trained with us back in 2008 during the MLS off-season and it seems he’s set to link up with the club again after moving back to live in London while he contemplates his future.
While there is no hint that Arsenal are looking to bring him on board in a playing capacity, the Mail claim he’s still keen to prove he can cut it at the highest level and the likes of QPR, West Ham and PSG are understood to be among the clubs interested.
