MY WORLD IS IN RUINS
From HARRY HARRIS in La Baule
David Beckham revealed the depth of his World Cup despair last night and
admitted he was destroyed from the moment Glenn Hoddle told him he was out
of the England team.
The Manchester United star now believes that his France 98 dream is over
before it ever began and is bitter and hurt by Hoddle's sudden rejection.
Beckham, shocked and confused after being dumped against Tunisia, said: "I

Gabriel Batistuta will make a decision on where he plays his club football
next season on Sunday, according to a Spanish report which names United as
one of the leading three candidates for the Argentinian's signature.
Barcelona head the queue of clubs tracking the Fiorentina star and could
swing the deal by using World Cup defender Sergi as bait to the Italians.
The report claims United have offered £10 million to the Florence club in a
straight cash deal while Real Betis have emerged as a late bidder.
Winger Offer Set To Fail
United have reportedly made a move for Inter Milan winger Francesco Moriero,
although the Italian World Cup star looks set to agree a new deal to stay in
The 28-year-old was the right-sided star of Inter's march to the UEFA Cup
final and a place in next season's Champions' League, attracting major
