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.

Huge Mistake! He said he wanted to work his way back into our international squad but if he plays in LA he'll never play again :( . He sould have joined a team in England or Italy. Totally agree nyaradzom2001

rubiala, he is moving here. titolia, yes, but it takes a lot of money to keep his wife happy. and now she can be a scientologist like her bff katie the puppet and shop at barney's all day.
loryn loryn 10 years,,2002390000-2007010649,00.html Huge Mistake! He said he really wanted to work his way back into our international squad and if he plays in LA he has no chance. Definately should have went to England or Italy.

So he really thinks only about the money. Having in mind that the greatest soccer players play in Europe. Disappointing....

NOTE TO ALL: CNN has just confirmed that they are coming to America. It's their cover story. Funny considering the much more important national events in the last 24 hours.

I wonder what he's listening to. He seems to have a determined walk ...perhaps he's listening to "We Are the Champions"... but yeah he's handsome *----------------------------------------------------* \m/(-_O) RAWWWWWWWWWWWK!!

Decision made, they're coming to LA.

I already read the headlines that he did sign with the Galaxy.

Not sure whether that was such a wise decision for him to make. The move probably means that he'll never play in a big competition again and he's only 31...

soccer is very popular here...until you get to college age. at least, it is in New England. It will just never get the popularity among adults who watch NFL, MLB, NHL..I've tried to explain why soccer is wonderful to many people to no avail! come to the Galaxy Becks! My family would travel to see him/the team play the Revs since stupid Tampa got rid of their team. (grrr Glazers!)

Yup EP soccer in America is like a complete afterthought it cannot compete with baseball, football and ice hokey. And the soccer pitches are crazy. I'm sorry but MLS sucks big time. I used to try watch it on ESPN and there is more exitement watching two schoolteams play on a dirt pitch in Africa. David won't sell out games in America.
ethiopian_princess ethiopian_princess 10 years
i also agree nyara. kiss of death to his soccer career if he moves here. and keep alien looking stick figure with 2 oranges taped on OUT of american press. it's bad enough that i have to see her picture on everything when i go to the uk and she doesn't even live there anymore.

If he wasn't so hot..he would be so gay. He should become best friends with David Arquette..I think they have the same stylist.

I think he would be great for American soccer, the MLS has suffered over the years and this would rejuvenate Americas interest overall instead of every 4 years when there's a world cup. I've never understood how soccer is popular in every country except the US. I hope he comes you know he'd sell out all the games! I'm going!
