Although conceding that David Beckham will remain in Spain, Big Sam has urged David Beckham not to discount Bolton if he ever returns to England.

‘Bolton Wanderers would love to sign David Beckham, of course we would,’ said Allardyce. ‘In the past when that sort of name has been attached to this club, people considered it as something that was never going to happen.

Sam Allardyce believes David Beckham could be tempted to join Bolton once he leaves Real Madrid.
Beckham has been linked with a number of high-profile European sides – including Internazionale and Celtic – as well as a potentially lucrative move to Major League Soccer in the United States, after failing to agree terms on a new contract at Real.

But Allardyce was adamant that, if Beckham should decide to leave the BernabĂ©u, Bolton would have every chance to sign him. ‘Bolton Wanderers would love to sign David Beckham, of course we would,’ said Allardyce. ‘In the past when that sort of name has been attached to this club, people considered it as something that was never going to happen.

‘But cast your mind back to Youri Djorkaeff. People scoffed and said he would never come to play for Bolton but he came. So did Bruno N’Gotty, Ivan Campo and Fernando Hierro – we’ve attracted some fabulous players to the club. I am not saying that is going to get us Beckham but if it could, I would love it.’
Allardyce is convinced, however, Beckham will stay put for the time being. ‘I don’t think David is considering leaving Real Madrid,’ he added. ‘He wants to do well and fight for his place because I know how much he loves the club and how much he loves Spain.’

Beckham at the Reebok? Whatever next?
