Tottenham and Manchester City will both offer David Beckham a chance to return to England after life in the States turned nasty.

Beckham confronts fans

Beckham confronts fans

Becks was viciously booed and jeered by a section of his own fans when he played his first match of the season for LA Galaxy at their Hope Depot Centre stadium on Sunday.

Both Premier League clubs are aware he could be available for a permanent transfer when the MLS season finishes in October.

That would mean Beckham losing out on more than half of the £125m contract he signed with the MLS in 2007.

But he could sign for any club under freedom of contract and Spurs and City are ready to offer him a two-year deal.

Such a move would further his desperate bid to be in the reckoning for England going into next summer’s World Cup.

It is known Fabio Capello is insistent Becks plays in Europe if he is to be part of the squad.

Yet sources close to the midfielder are adamant he is calm about the protests.

The group of Galaxy supporters who call themselves ‘The Riot Squad’ had jeered him before.

Becks then confronted a section of fans at half-time in the 2-2 friendly draw with AC Milan.

The row has erupted over Beckham’s decision to spend six months on loan at Milan last season in order to be available to play for his country.

He has since missed half of the MLS campaign with Galaxy but said last week he hopes to renew that loan this December.

Beckham declared: “The majority of fans have been great.”

But some held up banners calling him a ‘traitor’ and ‘Judas’ during the clash with the Italians and booed every time he touched the ball.
