It’s official. The Beckhams are moving out of their dwelling in LA and heading to another club. After a stint in America, earning Becks a rumoured £10 million + every year (without sponsorship deals and the like), David will no doubt be looking for a decent pay packet in what he is calling his final challenge. Wages might not be a huge issue though as clubs battle it out for the global brand and merchandising phenomenon that is David Beckham. Where are the most likely destinations for the former England and Manchester United man?
Paris St. Germain
PSG are loaded. Fact. They’ll be happy to meet his wages and will be licking their lips at the prospect of pairing Becks up with some of the stars they’ve already invested in. When it was confirmed that David would be on his way, the Paris club were one of the first to declare their interest. Don’t be surprised if this is Posh’s first choice.
The Milan following know Becks well after his time their earlier in his career, and we reckon a return would certainly be welcomed by the fans. Another destination that Victoria might be keen on due to it being a fashion paradise.
Australia (Perth Glory or Melbourne Heart)
Both clubs have declared an interest in Becks, with Heart’s chief exec Scott Munn telling the press ‘What I can say is that it’s certainly real, we’re putting forward an offer, it’s compelling and the opportunity is here for him to come here. That is absolutely legitimate. Let’s let David get through next week, play the final of the MLS and hopefully he’ll have a win.’ Rumours of Beckham down under were around before it was confirmed that he was on his way out of Galaxy.
You never know, right? United seem a little short in the Midfield area and whatever you believe about the relationship between Fergie and Becks, the two no doubt have worked together to good effect in the past. Lets just hope he doesn’t take any lessons from Victoria when it comes to comebacks, eh?
China has become one of those ‘career twilight’ moves, and rumours are rife that Beckham could follow Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba in making moves to Asia, who are reportedly paying stupid money as they increase the commercial appeal of football in China.
There are a few clubs in the UAE that would probably fancy a punt on Beckham, and have the cash to make it happen too. Not sure what Posh and the kids will make of a move to the middle east, though…
Where do you think Becks will end up? Is a return to England on the cards or a big money last hurrah? Leave us a comment below.
