David Beckham has revealed he has numerous offers to continue playing after his Los Angeles Galaxy career ends this weekend, but the former England captain does not expect a return to the Premier League.

The 37-year-old will bring the curtain down on six seasons in Major League Soccer in Saturday's MLS Cup final against Houston, and clubs are already lining up to sign the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star.

"I'm lucky because at 37 years old, I've been offered some exciting options," Beckham told Sky Sports News. "I've got quite a few offers on the table."

But asked if a return to England was on the cards, Beckham was more cautious.

"I've always said I think I would struggle to come back and play in England because I've played for the biggest club in the world, the biggest club in England, Manchester United, and I couldn't see myself playing for any other Premiership team.

"But you never know. Like I said, we've got some exciting options on the table. I do think we'll be spending a little more time in England because it's good for the kids to see their grandparents.

"Over the last six years it's been difficult not seeing them as much as we'd like and they'd like, but we definitely won't be leaving LA for good."

Beckham's reluctance to return to England to play could disappoint new QPR boss Harry Redknapp, who is among those to have been linked with an offer for the midfielder.

But Beckham said he appreciated all the praise that has come his way from Redknapp and others.

"What I'm really touched about is the fact that I've still got great managers like Harry, like (Paris St Germain coach) Carlo Ancelotti coming out and saying great things about me, not saying they would like to sign me, but saying nice things about me.

"I've spent a couple of months with Harry when I was training at Tottenham. He doesn't have to say the things that he says so it's nice that he talks about me in such a nice way."
