We already knew David Beckham wanted to remain with the L.A. Galaxy after his deal with a French club fell through. And now it is official.According to Kevin Baxter of the L.A. Times, Beckham has signed an extension with the Galaxy, keeping him with Major League Soccer for the next two years. The official announcement is expected Thursday.

Beckham wanted to remain with the Galaxy in large part due to how much his family loves living in Los Angeles.
