Beckham keen to stay in international picture

David Beckham has confirmed he will return to play in Europe when the 2009 MLS season concludes. The LA Galaxy star is keen to stay in the England picture over the winter period by playing in Europe ahead of next summer's World Cup. The 34-year-old spent time on loan with Serie A giants AC Milan earlier this year before eventually returning to the Galaxy midway through the 2009 campaign. Beckham has revealed he has plans in place ahead of the World Cup in South Africa, although he fully expects to be back in MLS following next summer's finals. The ex-Real Madrid and Manchester United ace, who claims to have offers on the table, expects his commitment to be criticised for leaving MLS for a second time.

Plans

"I have got plans," said Beckham. "I will finish the MLS season. After that, everybody knows that I'll be coming back to play somewhere. "LA Galaxy know that. If it upsets a few people, I can't do anything about it. "I keep saying how much I enjoy playing over there and how committed I am to the Galaxy, I think I will be back there after the World Cup. "But there is a possibility that the contract might break in the autumn and I do have options. "Milan have made me aware that they want me to go back there and I'm more than happy with that."
No Magpies switch
However, it seems for now that Beckham will not be making a shock move to Notts County after revealing he had not spoken to Sven Goran Eriksson for some time. Beckham was a firm favourite under Eriksson for England, but the veteran midfielder will not be joining ex-international colleague Sol Campbell at Meadow Lane. "I have also had another three or four offers, so when the time is right, I will decide," he continued. "But not Notts County, no. I haven't spoken to Sven in a while."
