Updated: 2005-02-05 11:35

England captain David Beckham says he wants to end his career at Real Madrid.

Beckham said his personal life was now less frantic after he cut his advertising commitments and that his wife Victoria and two sons were settled in Spain.

"I want, and I'm convinced that I will, end my career at Real Madrid," the 29-year-old told sports daily Marca on Friday.

"In football you can never tell what's going to happen, but I still think that I've got a lot to give as a player and I would like to continue at one of the best clubs in the world - Real Madrid.

"I want to stay here for many more years, for as long as Real Madrid want me to stay."

Beckham, who is under contract until 2007, made a promising start to his career at Real Madrid after joining the club for up to 35 million euros from Manchester United.

However, his form, like that of the rest of his team mates, tailed off badly as Real ended last season empty-handed.

Beckham insisted he had put the disappointments of his first season at the club behind him.

"I've got over what happened last year," he said. "It's now in the past. Now I prefer to look ahead to 2005.

"My aim is to play good football, enjoy life in Spain and enjoy playing for Real Madrid.

"I'm very happy at the moment, the team is working much harder and I've still got a lot more to give.

"Things have calmed down a lot," he said, referring to his private life. "I've still got a few problems from the paparazzi but apart from that there are no problems.

"I've got a house and my sons are happy at school. My wife is here every day and that helps. We're going to have our third child in Madrid, so he can play for Spain or England."
