Juventus join Beckham race
Juventus are challenging Inter for the opportunity to pick up David Beckham on a free transfer at the end of this season.
This week has already seen reports that the Nerazzurri view him as the perfect replacement for Luis Figo when the Portuguese international is expected to move on next year.
However, this morning Turin-based newspaper ‘Tuttosport’ has splashed its front page with claims that Juventus could tempt the ex-England captain away.
Curiously, the article is less of a report on actual events than an advice column for the Bianconeri directors, urging them to enter the fray.
Beckham’s contract with Real Madrid expires in June 2007 and he is still flanked by dozens of sponsors, although other stories have linked him with a switch to the high-paying LA Galaxy.
His season has been fraught with difficulties, most notably with Coach Fabio Capello, who has made it clear the former Manchester United man is not a part of his plans.
‘Tuttosport’ also list the transfer objectives they believe the Bianconeri are already actively working on, such as German internationals Torsten Frings and Miroslav Klose – the striker also a target for Roma.
