The 37-year-old midfielder said in a statement: "I've had an incredibly special time playing for the L.A. Galaxy, however, I wanted to experience one last challenge before the end of my playing career.
"I don't see this as the end of my relationship with the league (MLS) as my ambition is to be part of the ownership structure in the future."
His management on Friday denied he had plans to move to Australia's A-League though his decision to leave the Galaxy will prompt speculation over his next destination, with a return to England sure to be another option floated.
Beckham has spent six seasons with the Galaxy and in January signed a new two-year contract after winning the MLS title with the club.
