The Beckhams Are Coming to America!

Last night we went to bed writing about Becks' upcoming big decision. My dreams were answered. The soccer star just signed a 5 year deal with the LA Galaxy so the family is moving to America! It's a super big deal, in fact, the biggest deal in global history. Here's more:

"David has just signed the biggest deal in global sport history with the Galaxy soccer team," a Beckham business insider tells PEOPLE. "It is worth several hundred million dollars over five years. They will move after he finishes this season playing in Madrid."

Beckham has signed with the Los Angeles Galaxy team, which is owned by the Anschutz Entertainment Group. "They are very excited at the challenge. For David this means taking the game on to a new level. This is massive," says the source.

"After discussing several options with my family and my business advisers I have decided to join (the) L.A. Galaxy and play in the MLS (Major League Soccer) from August," Beckham said in a statement released on his behalf.

"They both love Los Angeles. It will be good for their careers, they adore the lifestyle, the weather and it would be brilliant for their boys," a family friend tells PEOPLE.

David supposedly is going to be banking $250 million. Sounds like Posh is going to be doing a lot of shopping. We welcome their family and can't wait to see if David is really going to be able to make the sport as popular here as it is everywhere else. I know I want to see him play when he comes.

also for his ego...he will be a huge star over here and have a major impact on soccer/MLS...maybe grow the interest even more on the youth level, if that's possible since it is already huge but there is always room for more! anyway...my family is already excited to plan a trip to NE when the Galaxy come...yay for becks!!

I agree, Luxifer. He definitely doesn't do it for the football. He'll probably never play in any important competition again...

i feel like they're leaving the "football" countries to come to a "soccer" one is b/c, as it has been said before, they have dominated those countries. posh wants to be famous in the US. she wants to take over brangelina's role of most famous celebrity couple.

i played soccer for over 18 years and no matter how much people want the sport to be HUGE here in the states it never will be for the simple fact that americans love american football, soccer is too slow of a sport for american's to get into, we are an instant gratification society here...they are and always will be more famous in england where they are from but i wish them and their children much health and happiness on their move to L.A. PS. hollywood isnt the greatest place to raise happy and healthy children "stay far from timid, only make moves when your hearts in it and live the phrase sky's the limit."

This doesn't make sense, it's like going to Mc Donalds to get a pizza. No one comes to the US for soccer, our teams are nothing compared to those in Europe or Afrika. Makes no sense to me why anyone would want to play here but hell David Beckahm in LA does not sound bad....

I agree with soccrspz...it will be the same situation where he cheated the last time...he will be off play fottie and she will be working on her career neglecting him as she did before and they will be many ladies willing to pay him attention and he will/may stray.

That would be too confusing for the millions of Americans that watch Monday Night Football (NFL) and the Super Bowl..they might end up at the wrong event.
