Beckham To Decide Future Next Week After Receiving 12 Offers From Around World
Published January 10, 2013
QATAR INTEREST: In London, Rob Beasley reported Beckham has been "offered a bumper two-year deal to join the Qatar Stars League." A Qatar source said, "When it comes to money offers, Qatar is the biggest by far. Senior figures in the Q League feel Beckham has the total package, and they need to up the interest in the game there around the world." A "lucrative, long-term PR role as an ambassador for the Qatar 2022 World Cup could also follow" (SUN, 1/9).
SORTING THE OFFERS: In London, Sami Mokbel reported Beckham's representatives are "compiling a dossier" from Beckham's offers in recent weeks. The option of retiring from football is "not being considered at the moment, though that could be explored if none of the options excite his interest." Queens Park Rangers and West Ham are "both keen on Beckham," but it is "highly unlikely that he will join a London club" (DAILY MAIL, 1/9).
