David Beckham to quit LA Galaxy

David Beckham

Former England captain David Beckham says he will leave LA Galaxy after the Major League Soccer Cup final on 1 December.

The 37-year-old midfielder, who's played in America for the last six seasons, says he wants one last challenge before the end of his career.

It's not been revealed where the former Manchester United and Real Madrid player will go.

But a spokesperson has said he has "no plans to play in Australia".

Beckham joined Manchester United when he was just 14, and went on to make 398 appearances for the club, winning six Premier League titles and the Champions League.

He moved to Real Madrid in a £25m deal in 2003, winning the La Liga title in 2007, weeks before moving to America.

He won the MLS Cup in 2011 with LA Galaxy, and was voted the league's best player by supporters in that season.
