London, July 12 : Former star David Beckham is likely to pay a brief visit to the London Olympics, as he focuses on L. A. Galaxy and Major League Soccer.
Beckham, 37, was shocked after being omitted from Stuart Pearce''s Team GB squad, despite playing a huge role in bringing the Olympics to Britain.
Lord Coe, Chairman of the London Games Organising Committee (LOCOG), this week revealed that he has held talks with Beckham regarding the possibility of being involved with the Games in some capacity, most likely in an ambassadorial role, though nothing has been confirmed at this point.
According to the Daily Mail, Beckham''s Galaxy contract allows him to be part of London 2012.
However, after missing out on Pearce''s squad, it is understood he now wants to play in the matches he would have missed for his club if he was named in Team GB and doesn''t want to disrupt Galaxy''s MLS season.
Sources close to the player have indicated that he could spend as little as a week in London before returning to America. (ANI)
