Real to launch Beckham bid?

David Beckham could be subject to a remarkable summer transfer bid from Real Madrid, but only if Florentino Perez becomes the club's next president.
The Sun claim that in order to bring the England international back to the Bernabeu Madrid would offer Los Angeles Galaxy £10m for Beckham, who turns 34 this May.
Perez, who was the man in charge at Real Madrid when Beckham was lured to the club from Manchester United in 2003 in a £24m deal, has emerged as the favourite to win this summer's presidential elections, although has yet to officially declare that he will stand.
The newspaper claim a top Madrid source said: ''Florentino will try to bring Becks back if he decides to run for the presidency. It would be silly to deny it.''
With Beckham having battled long and hard to remain on loan with AC Milan until the end of the season it is unlikely that he would be tempted by Madrid's possible offer.
Likewise it is doubtful that the LA Galaxy or Major League Soccer would be interested in any approach from the Spanish giants; while they have lost Beckham to Europe in the short-term the player insists his long-term ambitions remain firmly tied to developing the game in the US.
While Real Madrid presidential campaigns are renowned for prominently featuring the names of high profile transfer targets, it is more likely that the man who inherited Beckham's No.7 shirt at Manchester United will be the key pawn in the forthcoming election.
Former Real president Ramon Calderon has already insisted that a deal is already in place for Cristiano Ronaldo to join.
