Soccer ace David Beckham will reportedly be offered a move to the Middle East as he weighs up where he should end his playing career, according to a report.

He has left LA Galaxy to search for one final challenge and Qatar side Al-Sadd, captained by Spanish legend Raul, want the midfielder to sign for them.

United Arab Emirates outfit Al Wasl are also joining the hunt for his signature, the Daily Mirror reports.

According to the report, both options are intriguing for the former England star, and the two Arabic sides will be considered along with potential moves to French sides Paris Saint-Germain or Monaco.

Becks, 37, will also buy an MLS franchise, and Miami looks his most likely destination at this stage, the report said.

Al-Sadd play in the Qatar Stars League and are the country's most successful team, and Becks' arrival would help boost the game's popularity as it builds up to hosting the 2022 World Cup, it added.

Al-Wasl would be willing to challenge them for Becks though, particularly in the financial stakes. They recently had Diego Maradona on board as manager, earning more than 3 million pounds a year, the report concluded. (ANI)
