It is not the first time that David Beckham has been linked with a return to the Premier League, with Blackburn Rovers and Tottenham having also suggested they were interested in signing the former England international and now it is the turn of QPR to state an interest.
New Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes has recently suggested that the west London club could sign Beckham when the 36-year-old’s final year of his Major League soccer contract with LA Galaxy comes to an end, although manager Neil Warnock today revealed he has not discussed this with Fernandes.
“No, it is not a discussion [chairman Tony Fernandes and I] have had,” he said.
“I mean obviously it is good news for you lads I suppose and nothing much surprises me at the club but it’s not something we’ve talked about, not myself anyhow.”
“I’ve got enough problems worrying about Newcastle (on Monday), I don’t want to worry about that (as well).
“We can’t sign him anyhow, we can’t sign anybody else now until January so why worry?
“I think he is a fabulous professional. I think he has been a great asset to English football, I like him as a person but ask me in January.”
