London, Aug.10 (ANI): England football team coach Fabio Capello has told David Beckham to forget about the World Cup if he does not return to Europe at the end of the year.
Beckham is currently playing for LA Galaxy in America.
The Major League Soccer (MLS) season finishes in November and this could leave Beckham without much time to prepare for the World Cup campaign that starts in March.
The midfielder spent a spell on loan at AC Milan earlier this year and he may return there again.
Tottenham, Manchester City and Chelsea have also been touted as possible destinations.
England boss Capello said: "Beckham knows well that if he doesn't return to a big European championship in December he'll have no chance for the World Cup." (ANI)
