SYDNEY (AP) - David Beckham's decision to leave the Los Angeles Galaxy is generating more speculation in Australia about a possible move by the former England captain to the A-League.
The 37-year-old Beckham has announced that his six-season stint in U.S. Major League Soccer will end with the Dec. 1 MLS Cup against Houston.
Five Australian clubs have confirmed interest in bringing Beckham to the A-League, with the Melbourne Heart and Western Sydney Wanderers considered the top contenders due to the cosmopolitan nature of the two cities.
Last week, Beckham's management company denied reports he was headed to Australia.
