Speaking to BBC sport, the club’s sporting director Leonardo revealed the clubs interest in Beckham “I coached him at AC Milan [where Beckham, 36, was loaned from MLS side LA Galaxy] and we created a good relationship.

“He is more than a football player, but when you see him every day he trains and plays like a kid.

“He is someone that I really appreciate and admire so much – his values and everything he has done in football.”
