David Beckham has an estimated net worth of $260 million dollars
David Beckham is a former British soccer player with an estimated net worth of $260 million dollars. Beckham is six feet tall and weighs 170 pounds. David Robert Joseph Beckham was born May 2, 1975 in Leytonstone, London, England. His mother, Sandra Georgina, was a hairdresser, while his father, Edward Alan, was a kitchen fitter. Both were enormous fans of Manchester United Football Club. Imbued with a love of soccer and Man U, Beckham pursued a career in soccer from very early on, playing on several youth teams and distinguishing himself as a Under-15 Player of the Year for a local team. He signed a youth contract with Manchester United when he was 14. He played his first professional game with the club’s first-team in 1992 and signed professional contract afterward.
After being loaned to Preston North End for the 1994-1995 season, he was back at Manchester United the following year and he made his Premier League debut. Beckham was part of a group of young talented homegrown players that United would turn to in the mid-1990s. The move would yield results as Beckham led the charge and soon became a fixture on the team. His good looks and highly stylized hair styles made him popular throughout the country. Soccer successes only added to his stardom, as United won a vaunted treble (league, cup and Champions League) in 1999. That year, he married former Spice Girl, Victory Adams, making them the most popular couple in the UK and among the most popular on the planet. Beckham continued to achieve success with Manchester United into the 2000s but after his relationship with manager Sir Alex Ferguson began to deteriorate he decided to play for Real Madrid in Spain.
Beckham’s decision to play for one of the planet’s most famous teams only increased his global exposure and his time with Real Madrid resulted in his already immense star becoming a supernova. At around this time, the movie Bend it Like Beckham was released (and although he didn’t actually appear in the film) it furthered his legend. Success on the pitch may have been hard to come by in Madrid, but Beckham’s global brand continued to increase with more endorsements, high profile sightings, and famous friends. Becks next set out to concur the biggest media market on the planet, the United States, and he signed a record breaking contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy in Major League Soccer. Living in Los Angeles and cavorting with high-profile friends like Tom Cruise continued to build the Beckham brand. He would play for the Galaxy – with loans to another soccer giant AC Milan interspersed – until 2012, when he made a final move to Paris Saint-Germain to finish his career in the Parisian capital. Beckham’s stature shows no signs of fading even in retirement as he is in talks to buy an MLS team and continues to be a major brand ambassador across the globe.
