Beckham denies Madrid deal claim
David Beckham
Beckham was dropped from Steve McClaren's first England squad
David Beckham says he has not signed a new deal at Real Madrid but his camp insist talks are scheduled to resolve the 31-year-old's future.

Beckham's current deal expires at the end of the season and reports claimed he had signed a new two-year contract.

But a spokesman for the 31-year-old said: "He hasn't signed a new contract but we're due to sit down in September to hold talks."

"There is intention on both sides to tie David to an extension."

He added: "Madrid are happy and likewise David has gone on record to say he has enjoyed his time at Madrid."

Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon was reported to have claimed a deal had already been done and said is had been done "for sporting reasons".

Beckham joined Real in a 24.5m move from Manchester United in 2003, signing a four-year deal, but the club have failed to win a major trophy in his three seasons in Spain.

Beckham would have been free to negotiate with other clubs in January if he failed to agree a new contract with Real.

The former England captain was dropped from the national team by Steve McClaren when the new coach announced his first international squad.
