Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon remains confident that David Beckham will aign a new deal with the club.
Beckham has spent much of this season on the bench, but Calderon has stressed the importance to Real of the former England captain.
“I think Beckham, from the point of view of the fan, is one of the most important players at Real Madrid,” Calderon told Realmadrid TV.
“I speak as a fan and as the president of Real Madrid.
“For many reasons – commercial and sporting. But Beckham would be nothing commercially if he wasn’t for his sporting ability.
“I have spoken with Capello about Beckham, because it is in my interest as the president regarding hiring and contract renewals,” he added.
“And Capello said to me that he counts on Beckham. Therefore he has requested that I renew his contract, and that is what we are doing.
“Beckham has many offers because he is a key player in many senses but, as I said before, fundamentally on the sporting side.
“I think that he is going to renew his contract for another two years, but we will have to wait see if he wants to continue or not.”
