I belive, may be wrong, that the 'deal' centres around his image rights. When he was with Madird he had to give his image rights over to the club, he got 50% of any sponsorship deals, Hello magazine covers, t.v. apprearancecs etc.
Real Madrid MADE money out of David Beckham!
With (ford) Galaxy (
) LA he will get all his image rights and still be playing football (i.e. give him a 'job' other than admiting to being a media whore). I think that this means that Galaxy LA will not be paying him Â£128m over 5 years, he will just keep all he earns after the IRS take their share.
I actually love David Beckham, I think as a player he has real talent, as a Englishman he is a great advert for us worldwide and he does have that 'IamjustaladfromnorthlondonandIcan'tbelivethisisallhappeningtome' look.
If he can, why not. Good for him!
Somerset, like 'Heartbeat' with newer cars!
