With Cristiano Ronaldo gone, David Beckham has nabbed the position of this summer's most-rumoured transfer target, as reports indicate that both Chelsea and Tottenham are casting come-hither glances in his direction. Becks' return to LA Galaxy hasn't gone brilliantly well, with his longer-than-expected stint at Milan's San Siro stadium - a venue more glamorous than the Major League Sawker no-hopers' Home Depot Center - irking US fans, and the midfielder's burning desire to represent England in the World Cup means a move to Europe is in mind. Given his pedigree in the Premier League, and recent househunting in the capital, it's little wonder the Blues and the Lilywhites are sizing him up. Though his best playing years are behind him, the pride of Walthamstow can still whip in a dead ball like few others, and his celebrity heft and reputation for dressing-room conviviality would give a huge boost to either team. But with AC Milan and other European clubs looking at bringing him back, the London sides may be at the back of the queue.
