  Real Madrid want Beckham to stay
Updated 02 May 2004, 11.04
Becks should still be at Real next season
Real Madrid do not want David Beckham to leave in the summer, despite rumours linking him to Chelsea and Arsenal.

The man in charge of football at Real told the Observer newspaper that they do not intend to sell Beckham.

Jorge Valdano added that anyone thinking about buying the England captain would have to smash the world transfer record with a bid of 126m.

Even Chelsea would be unlikely to pay that much money, and it is far more than Arsenal could afford to pay.

But other newspapers think Becks will leave, some suggesting he'll be at Chelsea while others link him with Premiership winners Arsenal.

Beckham's personal assistant also thinks he'll stay in Spain, saying Real have told him they don't want to sell the midfielder.

However, last summer Real Madrid said they didn't want to buy Beckham in the first place, and weeks later he was signing for them.

Real are intending to have a very different looking team next season, as they are unlikely to win anything at all this year.

Superstars like Ronaldo and Luis Figo have been linked with moves away from the Spanish giants.
