Former Real Madrid defender Michel Salgado could be set for a reunion with his former teammate David Beckham at LA Galaxy after it was revealed that the player was considering an offer from the MLS club.
The 36-year-old defender is out of contract at the end of the season, and has already revealed that he will leave Blackburn at the end of the season. Blackburn are struggling down near the bottom of the table and are likely to be relegated to the Championship this season. Ever since revealing that he would leave Blackburn, Michel Salgado has not been selected for the matches by manager Steve Kean.
The 36-year-old recently revealed that LA Galaxy are one of the clubs showing interest in signing him. This would mean that it is very much possible that Salgodo will be reunited with his Real Madrid teammate David Beckham at LA Galaxy. Salgado has won the Champions League two times in his illustrious career, but is now coming to the end of his career during which time he has won many trophies. Salgado is thought to have been extremely disappointed at the way the club have treated him since his decision to leave the club at the end of the season.
“Michel felt he could have helped the team, but he was told before Christmas that he could not play. He was prepared to rip up his contract and agree to leave in the summer, but they said no. The club wanted him to go in January, but he didn’t want to uproot his children before the end of the school year. Now he is considering offers from the Middle East and Qatar,” said a close source of Michel Salgado. The player is also thought to be interested in a move to the Middle East.
