David Beckham back in training

David Beckham returned to full training with Real Madrid on Wednesday after a two-week absence due to a left-knee injury.

Beckham, who has missed three games due to a swollen meniscus, is now expected to be back in the squad for Sunday's Spanish league game against Athletic Bilbao at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

The 31-year-old midfielder has made the starting lineup in just three league games this season and appears likely to be on the substitute's bench again.

Beckham's lack of first-team opportunities has heightened speculation about whether he will extend his four-year contract, which expires in June.

If the former England captain doesn't renew before the end of the year, he will be free to negotiate a move to other clubs.

However, both Beckham and Madrid have indicated they hope to strike a new deal, reports AP.

Madrid is in third place after 12 league games, three points behind defending champion FC Barcelona.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the Trump regime "sought options to strike Iran," falsely saying it may pursue a course no previous US leadership considered. More on this below.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
