Becks is keen to keep up his fitness and with a return to AC Milan not on the cards, clubs around Europe became interested.
The last time Beckham visited Goodison Park, it was the last day of the season in 2003. He scored United’s equalising goal before Ruud van Nistelrooy scored the winner, with United lifting the Premier League trophy.
Like usual though, Becks has ruled out a move to an English club, because of his loyalties to Manchester United.
“It is always great to be wanted by different managers and different teams,” said Beckham. “Even if it’s on loan or a more permanent spell, it’s always nice. I have got great respect for David Moyes from playing with him at Preston. I think he has done an amazing job at Everton, but I am a Manchester United fan — it’s too close to home.”
