    Beckham signs with LA, $1 mil per WEEK

    Beckham to quit Real and head for L.A.

    MADRID (Reuters) - Former England captain David Beckham will leave Real Madrid at the end of the season and sign a five-year deal for MLS side Los Angeles Galaxy, he told Reuters on Thursday.

    "This week Real Madrid asked me to make a decision regarding my future and the offer to extend my contract for a further two seasons," said Beckham.


    "After discussing several options with my family and my advisors to either stay here in Madrid or join other major British and European teams I have decided to join LA Galaxy and play in the MLS from August this year.

    <<<<<snip>>>>>>>>

    His deal is reported to be one of the biggest in global sport with Beckham set to earn more than $250 million over the duration of his contract following the removal of the salary cap in the MLS. Beckham will earn approximately one million dollars a week.

    Anyone else think this is obscene? At least Posh will be able to be with BFF Katie Holmes. Bet the Scientologists are lusting after this salary.

    I just read this on the Comcast news. My son will be the happiest boy in the world. My son is a HUGE Beckham fan. Loves ManU and gets to be so lucky as to go to the soccer camp in England for the past two years. Then he became a supporter of Real Madrid for Beckham. Now that Beckham is coming to the States, my son will be ecstatic. Can't wait to pick him up from school to tell him.

    I honestly thought Beckham would never come to the States, although hubby and son assured me that he would.

    Edited to add: IMO, the amount of money this man is being paid to play soccer is CRAZY. He is a good player, but geeeeeeezzzzzzz that is a lot of money.

    It's what Posh has always wanted!

    and this means she'll probably be in town when Mel B has Eddy Murphy's baby so they can have a reunion. then Ginger will turn up. two more to arrive and they can re-form the Spice Girls.

    That he is. I'm thinking if he's with Posh, he's probably as dumb as a bag of rocks, but if I wanted to talk, I could go out.

    YOU are shameless, madam!



    i admit he is gorgeous especially after seeing him photographed in his speedos last year (quite possibly the only man alive who can wear them without anyone s******ing). although i have heard he's a bit dense upstairs but you weren't imagining intelligent discourse, were you?

    Another nice piece of meat is Jose Canseco, imo. When I say piece of meat, I mean...I like the looks, body, etc., but not necessarily the man.

    I see nothing appealing about her. She definitely needs to fix her little pig nose, imo. Sorry, but . UGH.

    I wonder if they'll be converted to Scientology while in L.A. (I need a spaceship smiley here )

    It is obscene. its the equivalent of some lame actor like Tom Cruise making 2 movies a year. LOL Beckham is at least worth more then Tom Cruise.

    I agree, Tybee. Beckham is much nicer to look at too. Maybe he can act? Replace tom entirely? One can dream....
