LONDON (AP) - Nearly a month after leaving the Los Angeles Galaxy, David Beckham is considering “a number of serious proposals” but is in no rush to find a new team.

He has been linked to clubs in France, Australia and Asia in what would be the final chapter of the playing career of the 37-year-old midfielder and former England captain.

Beckham’s management company says in a statement Thursday that offers are “on the table from a host of clubs across the world,” but it’s “early days in the process.”

The statement says Beckham is “in no hurry to make a decision,” adding that “the key is making the right one as he has always done.”

Beckham ended his five-year stint in Major League Soccer on Dec. 1.
