He won't be with the Galaxy, but David Beckham has plenty of choices when he decides where he wants to play next.

Beckham has gotten offers from clubs in France, Australia and Asia. He has also received interest from a handful of English Premier League teams and at least one club in China is interested. The international transfer window opens Jan. 1.

A “host of clubs” have made offers, Beckham's management company said in a statement to the Associated Press on Thursday, but it remains “early days in the process.”

“David is in no hurry to make a decision, the key is making the right one as he has always done successfully in his career,” the statement said.

Beckham ended his five-year stint in Los Angeles by helping the Galaxy win their second consecutive MLS Cup on Dec. 1.

“David is enjoying spending quality time with his family over the holidays,” his management company said.
