David and Victoria Beckham have decided against buying a property in London and will rent instead.
David and Victoria Beckham are to rent a property in London.
The couple are planning to return to the UK with their four children, Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, Cruz, seven, and 17-month-old Harper, later this year but after looking to buy properties in the upmarket areas of Mayfair, Kensington and Holland Park, the pair have decided not to make such a big purchase while David's soccer career is still uncertain.
A source told The Sun newspaper: ''David still has a big interest in Major League Soccer and they both loved living in LA, so they decided it wasn't time to pay out on another hugely expensive property.''
David - who has been linked with clubs in the UK, France and China following his announcement that he is leaving current side Los Angeles Galaxy - and Victoria recently enrolled their sons into a £15,000-a-year school in London.
A source said: ''For David and Victoria, the children come first. They have spent months researching schools and after visiting a few earlier this month, have found one they agree on.
''It's an independent school and will not be fazed by having celebrity children on its books. Both David and Victoria's families are all delighted too as a return to London means they will see so much more of the children.''
