David Beckham London, Jan 11 (ANI): England midfielder David Beckham is ready take a pay cut for a three-month loan move to Tottenham Hotspur.

If the deal between Beckham and Tottenham Hotspur goes through, it would be the first time that the 35-year-old will be playing for an English club since he left Manchester United to join Real Madrid in 2003.

Beckham gets 120,000 pounds a week at LA Galaxy, but is happy to accept Tottenham’s offer of 65,000 pounds, as they will not change their pay structure.

Now, Tottenham just have to persuade Galaxy to let the superstar stay until mid-March - and not demand he returns for pre-season training on February 10, The Sun reports.

“It’s not about insuring Beckham while he is in England and it’s definitely not about image rights either,” a club insider said.

“It is now purely a question of how long Galaxy will let him stay. Spurs will go ahead with the loan if they get the extra month,” he said.

Beckham underwent medical check up at a private hospital in East London yesterday as well as fitness tests at Tottenham’s Essex training HQ. (ANI)
