Beckham left to wait for his dream loan move to Tottenham

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

LONDON - Ace midfielder David Beckham will have to wait for his dream move to Tottenham on loan as his American bosses are busy buying an NFL team.

Beckham was hoping to complete a three-month loan switch in time to face former club Manchester United on January 16.

But the whole deal is under threat because his LA Galaxy chiefs, the AEG Group, are involved in a one billion pound bid to buy the San Diego Chargers gridiron team, The Sun reports.

Billionaire businessman Philip Anschutz, head of AEG, would need to give the green light to any loan deal involving the Galaxy’s biggest star and he is devoting all his time to the gridiron bid and will not talk about football matters until at least the end of this week.

Galaxy boss Bruce Arena is also against any further loan moves for Beckham, who has spent the past two winters at AC Milan.

A team insider said last night: “This issue isn’t going to get resolved in the next day or two so everyone is going to have to wait. The owners have bigger things to deal with and the head coach is in no hurry either.” (ANI)
