It’s British Invasion 2007! Soccer superstar David Beckham has signed a $250 million dollar five-year contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy. His current contract with Real Madrid will expire at the end of June. Before that, he was captain and key member of Manchester United.
In a statement released Thursday, Beckham said, “I am proud to have played for two of the biggest clubs in football and I look forward to the new challenge of growing the world’s most popular game in a country that is as passionate about its sport as my own.”
