England football team captain David Beckham would like to end his career playing Major League Soccer in the US, a BBC report said Tuesday.

The Real Madrid midfielder, who still has one year to run on his contract in Spain, said he was attracted by the country's passion for sport.

"At some stage, playing in America is possible," the 30-year-old was quoted as saying by the BBC's sport website.

"For me, America is so passionate and I would like to be a part of that. I have one year left at Real, and maybe two more after that, but things can change in football and the American league does interest me," added Beckham.

"I want to be part of a country that is passionate about sport. I have got my academy in Los Angeles which is important to me because that is my life after the game," he said.

"America for me is one of the most passionate places. There is an incredible feeling around the country."
