Though his soccer career may be over, former superstar (and globally-recognized eye candy) David Beckham is starting a new venture: starting a Major League Soccer team in Miami.
Beckham has reportedly been languishing over a location for a new MLS franchise since leaving the LA Galaxy in December. The athlete will pay $25 million to start the new Miami extension team, an anonymous source told the Associated Press.
When Beckham became a member of the Galaxy in 2007, the possibility of becoming a team owner in the future was incorporated into his contract.
“We know that Miami is one of the most passionate soccer markets in North America,” MLS Executive Vice President Dan Courtemanche told the AP. “We have met with David Beckham regarding ownership of an expansion team, and we look forward to David one day owning an MLS club.”
Plans for the team are not yet being publicly (or officially) discussed.
