The soccer star began working in the country after signing with Spanish team Real Madrid in 2003, and the couple bought a lavish home in the city in 2005.

They put the five-bedroomed house on the market in 2007 after Beckham joined LA Galaxy and moved the family to Los Angeles, but the property failed to sell amid the country's economic downturn and it reportedly sat empty for years.

The Beckhams have now finally agreed a deal for the house for $6.7 million (£4.2 million), 10 years after they originally bought it for $4.8 million (£3 million).
