Will the Beckhams Be Coming to America?

David Beckham has a big decision to make. The soccer superstar must decide if he will renew his contract with Real Madrid. There were rumors that Becks would not even get the chance to stay with his current team but apparently that was a bad case of lost in translation. Now we're getting an update from David's spokesman. He said, "There's still a written offer on the table from Real Madrid. We have a meeting in the next 48 hours." However, apparently David was pissed about the mistake in the press and he hasn't been getting the playing time he deserves. Therefore LA is looking a lot nicer to him these days. Here's more:

Last night a source close to Becks said: “The challenge in the States is to get American kids to fall in love with football.

“No other player — even greats like Pele and George Best — has managed it. It would be an incredible achievement.”

LA Galaxy have offered him £1.5million a year — compared to the £5million he gets at Madrid.

But they have told him he can control his image rights, which will net him a further £20million.

The source said: “He would continue to play football as well as becoming a huge ambassador for the sport in America. There would be advertising and sponsorship too. And it would let him work more closely with the soccer academy he’s already set up in LA.”

A source close to Victoria said: “She loves being in Los Angeles and New York — she feels there are lots of new opportunities for her and David there.

“Her own range of jeans sold very well in America and she plans a full-on assault on the fashion industry.

“Victoria met J-Lo at a party in New York last year and they hit it off instantly. David also gets on well with J-Lo’s husband Mark Anthony and considers Tom Cruise one of his closest friends.

“He likes the Los Angeles lifestyle and thinks it’s a great place to raise a family.”

We know they've been looking for homes, and we do think it would be a great opportunity. As someone who grew up playing soccer I would love to see this country embrace the sport like they do overseas. If Beckham is up for the challenge then we fully support it! Besides, it means we'll get to see a lot more of the sexy soccer star.
