All the football clubs that could afford him, doesn't want him. Too overrated. All the football clubs that want him, couldn't afford him. What's a guy to do? Go USA where hardly anyone watches football (Oops! soccer).

He shouldn't have left Manchester United in the first place.

He's gone to inspire the yanks to play the beautiful game, have a nice life in the sun with his family, play a decent level of football until he retires at 37, and earn an absolute fucking mint ($250,000,000). Fair enough to the hardest working player and hardest done to player the game has ever produced. As for leaving Man Utd, it wasn't his decision as Ferguson sold him and he was unlucky to join Real Madrid at a time when they were in decline. He is a great ambassador for the game and could get those fat yanks off their lazy arses and play some fuckin sport. Fair enough. Good luck Becks

Yep - he's gonna be the highest paid sportsman in the world - 25 million pounds a year for the next five years. That's more than I make.

I thouight no-one knew who he was in the states?

Its because of his wife isn't it? She wanted a shot at fame in the states, and a bit more cash to spend on shoes and being skinny. She's after a chat show I reckon. Victoria wears the (gucci) trousers and decided the family should live the Hollywood lifestyle. Perhaps a chance to get little Brooklyn and Romeo into the movies?

How long before she's having a scrap with Paris Hilton? That I'd love to see. Silly cow.

Poor David. He could do so much better. I'm single.

25 millions a year... That's on par with the budget of a small Nation in the developing world

And that does not include any income form ads and other stuff...

I heard on the news that it was like 4 million per week. Does that mean that he only works 6,25 weeks per year? I think he can be proud of himself, well done
