David Beckham Comes Home
David Moyes announced his first signing of the Summer Transfer Window, as none other than legendary footballer David Beckham. Beckham's contract with French giants Paris Saint-Germian ended at the end of the last season, and as soon as David Beckham became a free agent, David Moyes rushed in to get the signature of the former Manchester United legend.
David Beckham started his career at Manchester United in 1991, and after playing regularly from 1995, became a club legend, known for his exceptional crossing and amazing free kicks. Many United fans remember David for his infamous lob from the halfway line against AFC Wimbledon. Beckham then left Manchester United after falling out with manager Sir Alex Ferguson, in an incident involving football boots and stitched eyebrows. Real Madrid paid £24,500,000 for the services of 'Golden Balls'. He played for four years, as part of the Los Galacticos side that dominated Europe.
Becks then moved to America for free, where he joined LA Galaxy. Beckham didn't feature much during the 2007 season, but scored 5 goals in 25 games the following season. AC Milan wanted to obtain the services of Beckham, so we went on a loan during the 2008/09 season, where he played 14 times. He returned for the remainder of the American season, and rejoined AC Milan, once again on a season long loan. Los Angeles was his home for good until 2012, when he left America to join recently-invested Paris Saint-Germain. David featured for PSG 22 times, before deciding not to renew his contract, leading to his move back to United.
As David is now 38, he may end his career at his boyhood club. David Beckham signed a one year contract in which he would earn £10.75k per week. However, if David played 20 times in the season for the reds he would get a one-year contract extension. Although he may be getting older, he still has many of his skills available to use in the Premier League, including his crossing and free-kicks.
David Beckham is only expected to be back-up for the side, but many former Manchester United players, and current fans, have praised David Moyes for his capture of such a club legend. Beckham felt it was fate he returned to Manchester after many years, and can't wait to put on that club shirt once again, doing so in 2010 during the testimonial of Gary Neville.
David Beckham is currently valued at £325k.
