Queens Park Rangers manager Neil Warnock yesterday dropped the biggest hint yet that the Premier League side are chasing David Beckham.
Newly promoted Rangers, who last month saw ambitious Malaysian businessman Tony Fernandes become the majority shareholder, have since consistently been linked with Beckham, who plays for LA Galaxy.
"About three weeks ago I would not have dreamed to sign Joey Barton so I will never write anything off," said Warnock, who has embellished his squad with several new players since Fernandes arrived at the London club.
Fernandes, the flamboyant head of fast-growing budget airline AirAsia, said in a tweet Tuesday: "I think having someone like David (Beckham) in the club would be great. Was always in my thoughts. Let's see."
