David Beckham - David Beckham Close To Buying U.s. Team

Soccer stud and model David Beckham is close to buying a U.S. team.

The international sports superstar announced last week (20Nov12) he will be leaving U.S. club Los Angeles Galaxy in December (12), but insisted he and his wife Victoria had no plans of moving their family away from California, where they have lived since he signed on for the current Mls champions six years ago.

And now it appears Beckham will be turning to ownership when he hangs up his boots - he has revealed plans to take over one of the teams he has played against in recent years.

During an appearance on Los Angeles DJ Ryan Seacrest's breakfast show on Thursday (29Nov12), the sports star said, "That (taking over a club) will obviously come into play now. It only came into play once I finished playing here.

"I'm excited about that. My commitment when I came here six years ago was to take this league to another level, and my commitment stays the same. I might not be playing here but I will become a owner of a franchise and it's something that I'm excited about.

"We're close to a decision on that, but I can't say it right now."

But there's is one rumour Beckham can dismiss - he won't be taking on a Tv chat show.

He adds, "The talk show is not true. Not that I know of... There's a lot of rumours about where I'm going to play, what we're going to do, where we're going to live. There has always been. We actually haven't made up our minds about where we are going to end up."

And there's another business plan afoot for when Beckham turns his back on playing soccer for the Galaxy - he hopes to partner up with best pal and top chef Gordon Ramsay on a project: "We've got something in the pipeline... We're awfully good friends, and we're excited about a project we are putting together!"

He also has a slate of Tv appearances in the pipeline - Beckham has promised former Friends star Matthew Perry he'll appear on his sitcom Go On.
