Harry Redknapp says David Beckham won’t face Man Utd even if he does join Tottenham.
A deal could eventually be reached later this week ahead of leaders United’s visit to White Hart Lane on Sunday.
“Manchester United this Sunday would be a non-starter even if he does sign,” said Redknapp in The Sun.
“He is not fit to play yet and he knows that. It’s going to take him a few weeks to get back to anywhere near the fitness levels he’s used to.”
Beckham has slotted into training easily with the Spurs squad and Redknapp is keen to have the player’s experience at his disposal.
He added: “You cannot beat experience and David has it in bucket loads.
“No matter how well you are playing, when you are going into the second half of the season and have Champions League football as well as the Premier League, it’s what you need.”
