David Beckham's contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy expires at the end of this season, but that doesn't necessarily mean that his stint in Major League Soccer is over.
Beckham and the Galaxy are in Toronto for tonight's match with Toronto FC at BMO Field, and when asked by reporters on Tuesday if he would return to MLS next season, Beckham replied, "Yeah, there's a chance. I haven't made any decision about what I'm going to do after this year."
Beckham, 35, has repeatedly stated his desire to play for England again, whether it be in a World Cup, the European Championships or as an overage player in next summer's Olympics in London. If he could not secure a consistent starting spot overseas, a return to MLS could afford him the playing time necessary to remain match-fit for the long haul.
Do you think Beckham will return to MLS next season? Cast your vote after the jump:
Beckham's MLS adventure has been a bit of a roller coaster. Between the loan moves overseas, the injuries and the lack of trophies, he hasn't helped the Galaxy on the field as much as most would have expected. From a marketing and box office standpoint, he's been everything MLS could have hoped for by making the Galaxy a tremendous road draw and bringing international attention to the league.
He's gotten off to a strong start this season, assisting on three goals and contributing as a central midfielder as he tries to help the Galaxy to an elusive MLS Cup title.
How did you vote? Can you see Beckham returning to MLS next season? How would you rate his time in MLS thus far?
