David Beckham is scheduled to hold talks with Real Madrid next week over their offer of a new two-year contract.

The former England skipper is out of contract in June and is currently free to speak to other clubs about a possible move next summer.

“There is a significant deal on the table from Real. It’s slightly more than he’s currently on,” his spokesman, Simon Oliveira, told BBC Sport:

“They are the only club we are genuinely talking to at the moment and another meeting is scheduled for the second week of January.

Some British newspapers had claimed that the deal had stalled because Real were unwilling to release control of Beckham’s image rights, but his spokesman denied this was the case.

“Decisions about his image rights and salary are obviously important, but they are not deal breakers,” Oliveira added.

Oliveira said there that Beckham would be staying at the Bernabeu until the end of the season.

“David intends to play a major role for Real Madrid for the remainder of the season,” he said.

“He wants to take time over this decision. It will be the last significant deal of his football career. He will know by March what he is going to do.”
