Beckham still to sign Madrid deal

David Beckham has not signed a new Real Madrid CF contract but the offer of a new one has not been withdrawn, sporting director Predrag Mijatović has clarified.

David Beckham has not signed a new Real Madrid CF contract but the offer of a new one has not been withdrawn, it has emerged.

Clarification
Beckham joined Madrid from boyhood club Manchester United FC on a four-year contract in 2003, but that expires in the summer. Earlier today Real Madrid CF sporting director Predrag Mijatović is reported to have told the Sky Italia television: "Beckham will leave us, we will not renew his contract with the club." However, Mijatović has said that his words were mistranslated and that he in fact stated: "Beckham's contract has not been renewed yet."

'Nothing official'
Speculation has been growing that Beckham would leave Madrid as he has not found favour under Fabio Capello, who took over as coach in the summer, but a spokesman for Madrid president Ramón Calderón said: "There is nothing official confirmed yet on Beckham's future."
