Although there is no mention of it on the official website, the news is that soccer superstar David Beckham will be leaving Real Madrid at the end of the season and signing a five-year $250 million deal with the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer.
“This week, Real Madrid asked me to make a decision regarding my future and the offer to extend my contract by a further two seasons. After discussing several options with my family and advisers to either stay here at Madrid or join other major British and European clubs, I have decided to join the Los Angeles Galaxy and play in the MLS from August this year.”
Beckham believes he can change the perception of the game in the US and a move to California would appeal to his family. Namely, his social-climbing wife, Posh Spice, who, since it doesn’t look like the queen is going to knight Becks anytime soon and make her a Lady, has been itching to get him in Hollywood so they can become a power couple. Because that’s what she really really wants. (Bloomberg)
