Many would argue that Beckham is one of the most famous athletes outside of soccer, as him and his wife Victoria, who is recognizable herself as a former member of the Spice Girls, have become notable fashion icons. In March 2013, he was named as the first global ambassador for Chinese football, despite never playing a match for a Chinese team.

In January 2009, Beckham joined AC Milan in a loan until the beginning of the 2009 MLS season. After an impressive start with the Italian club, Beckham sought out a permanent transfer to Milan to ensure that he would remain on England’s radar for the 2010 World Cup. He took an extended loan and returned to LA for the 2nd half of the MLS season.

At the end of the 2009 MLS season, after losing to Real Salt Lake in the championship, he returned to AC Milan on loan. In a game against Chievo, Beckham tore his Achilles tendon and missed the 2010 World Cup as well as the MLS season.

After relationships soured with Real Madrid officials, Beckham announced in early 2007 that he had signed a five-year deal to play for the LA Galaxy. The entire world turned their attention to the news and it was widely reported he would be joining the team on a 5 year/$250 million dollar deal. This turned out to be more of a stunt and figure that represented what he could make from all of his revenue sources. The actual deal was in the ballpark of $6 million per year.

In the summer of 2003, after much speculation that he was heading to Barcelona, Beckham was sold to the Spanish giants Real Madrid for €35 million. Joining fellow stars such as Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo, Raul, Iker Casillas, and Roberto Carlos, the Galactios were supposed to compete for titles every year. To the disappointment of many, Real Madrid won only one La Liga title during Beckham’s four seasons.
