Football: IS BECKHAM CAR-MING HOME?
DAVID BECKHAM is being driven out of Real Madrid - as these pictures show.
The England captain, 28, yesterday cast even more doubt over his future after having his beloved 4x4 supercar shipped back to England from Madrid.
And now Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will be hoping that Beckham will be following his favourite car back to England as the Russian billionaire is determined to pull off the biggest transfer coup in Premiership history.
Beckham insists he does not want to quit Madrid but his alleged affair with Rebecca Loos and the forthcoming club elections have put a doubt over his future. The midfielder has not managed to persuade his wife Victoria to join him in Spain and he may return to be with his family in England.
Spanish businessman Enrique Sobrino - who is standing against Florentino Perez in the Real Madrid elections - has admitted he may sell Beckham if he gains control of the club. That comes after Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri admitted that Abramovich is "thinking of" signing Beckham and his Real Madrid team-mate Ronaldo.
Beckham is believed to want to give Real Madrid one more year to prove he was not a flop, but the return of his car may prove wheels are already in motion for a return to England.
