Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson plans to lure David Beckham to Leicester City when his LA Galaxy contract expires at the end of next month.
Beckham has been heavily linked with Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham Hotspur as well as French side Paris Saint Germain but Eriksson will offer the former England captain a coaching role at the club before his involvement with the London 2012 Olympics.
Eriksson says he has already discussed the role with the former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder.
“I have already had that discussion with him,” said Eriksson.
“Beckham, he will never say no to me, he says, ‘Sven, we’ll see, we’ll see’.”
Beckham is has not yet made it clear what role he would like in the game once his current contract expire but it is believed he would like to enter coaching at some stage in the near future.
“The big thing is what he wants to do when his contract finishes in LA. Will he want to go on playing?
“I guess most of the clubs in England will take him, as a good football player and for the image.
“We will offer him a coaching role at once, of course, we will give him a whistle and he can go out straightaway.”
