When I first read the words David Beckham in the same breath as Blackburn Rovers I thought that can't be right... can it?
Much like my colleague at Vital Manchester City I thought the crazy rumour mill had moved on from City to Rovers! But is the thought of Beckham plying his trade with Rovers such a far-fetched thing?
The first I read of this was on the news in brief page on BBC and I couldn't help but chuckle, then I started thinking about it and looked into more to find that Rovers boss Mark Hughes had made some genuine comments (at least I assume they are genuine?) on the situation, saying in today's Sun newspaper (also being reported on sky sports):
"I think everybody would be interested in David Beckham.
"I am sure if he came on the open market, there would be a few people in the queue for him. He is an exceptional talent and has been for a long time."
If and that is a big IF Real Madrid decide that Beckham can leave Hughes will consider making a move for the 31-year-old former England International captain.
Under new Madrid boss Fabio Capello Beckham has found regular first team football hard to come across and it has been rumoured that Beckham could move on in January as his contract is drawing to an end. If this is the case then I am sure that MANY other clubs around the globe will be interested so Rovers will face a tough battle:
"There were a few in for Craig Bellamy and we got him," added Hughes when pointing out he had beaten other "bigger" teams to sign a player before.
Bellamy is different to Beckham for sure but could the fact that Hughes is a friend and former Manchester United teammate of Beckham's sway things in our favour? It is more likely however that Beckham will prefer to see out his days on the continent so if other European teams don't move in for him I doubt he'll be short of offers from America and the Middle East.
Personally I feel that Beckham may well be passed his best but IF (there's that big if again!) Rovers could sign him (his wages would prove a MAJOR stumbling block though) I would welcome such a move.
How this could raise our profile...
