David Beckham will base his family in London wherever he ends up. He has been living in Los Angeles since 2007 but will move after leaving LA Galaxy.
Beckham will hold a series of meetings with his advisors next week as he nears a decision about his future.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid player ended his five-and-a-half-year stint at LA Galaxy in December.
The schooling of Beckham’s four children is a priority but he is still weighing up offers from various continents.
Beckham joined Manchester United as a 14-year-old and went on to make 398 appearances for the club, winning six Premier League titles and the Champions League.
He moved to Real Madrid in a £25m deal in 2003 and won the La Liga title in 2007before joining LA Galaxy.
Beckham won the MLS Cup twice during his time in America and his last match was the 2012 MLS Cup final, where he helped his side beat Houston Dynamo 3-1.
Beckham is expected to decide his playing future next week.
