Sam: Becks won’t swap LA for Lancs

Rovers’ prospective new owner Ahsan Ali Syed has vowed to back
Allardyce in the transfer market if a takeover goes through and
admitted recently that he would love to sign Beckham. Allardyce
feels such a move would be good for the profile of the club, while
he also thinks Beckham could still be successful in the Premier
League at the age of 35. However, he doubts whether the Galaxy
midfielder would be open to a switch back to England after leaving
Manchester United in 2003. “Mr Syed says that he would like to
spend it on youth, and then that he would like to sign David
Beckham,” Allardyce told Sky Sports News. “Obviously that’s not
actually youth, but that’s like more of a PR signing that would
bring a lot of attention to the club. “To me it is about whether
David is still good enough to play in the Premier League at his
age, and he probably is. “And the other factor is does he want to
come to Blackburn and does he want to come back to England? “In my
experience the answer to that is no. He has never really wanted to
play for anyone else other than Manchester United, that was the
last time I spoke to him which was a number years ago, and if he
can’t do that then he would sooner player somewhere else in the
world of football.”
