"We have offered a contract extension to Beckham. I have spoken to him personally. He is happy here, with his children's school, the climate ... but he is not playing and he wants to wait a
little [to decide]."
-- Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon
on David Beckham
, who joined the Spanish club from Manchester United in 2003 on a four-year, $41 million contract.
