They've made no secret of their love for their adopted American homeland, but it seems that David and Victoria Beckham are "seriously considering" a move back to the UK and have even started looking for a new family home in London.
"They love their life in Los Angeles, but there are some serious discussions going on at the moment about a potential move," a source close to the Beckhams tells HELLO!.
At the end of last year speculation was rife that David would transfer to French club Paris Saint-Germain, but in January he signed a new two-year contract with his club LA Galaxy, citing his family's need for stability as the reason for remaining Stateside.
"My family and I are incredibly happy and settled in America, and we look forward to spending many more years here," he said at the time.
However, Galaxy and their star midfielder agreed to a one-year get-out clause – and there are signs that this may be about to be exercised.
Our source says: "David is passionate about his career and wants to spend his last years as a top level footballer playing to the best of his ability.
"He may well get offers from European clubs, and he's made it clear that, if the offer is right, a move back across the Atlantic could be on the cards."
Friends of the Beckhams say the next few weeks will be crucial as the family considers its options should David decide that his career in Major League Soccer in the US has come to an end.
Victoria, who has previously been reluctant to uproot the couple's three school age sons – Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, ten, and Cruz, seven – now thinks that a move might be the best option.
