David BeckhamDavid Beckham is considering coming out of retirement.

The 39-year-old soccer star quit the professional sport in 2013 following a successful 20-year career, but has hinted he is already getting "that itch" to return to the game.

Speaking in a BBC documentary David Beckham: Into The Unknown David explained, "When you finish playing it's a tough time, I found it tough. You go through a stage of enjoying the rest and then you don't know what to do, you need to do something. Now I am going through the stage of missing the game. I go and watch athletes at the top of their game, it gives me that itch again. I want to be back in the game again. I start thinking to myself, 'Could I come out of retirement and start playing again?'"

David has just bought his own Major League Soccer franchise in Miami and hinted he might play for the team. The former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder added, "There's never been a player-owner but maybe?"

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sports, Rumors,

David BeckhamDavid Beckham is in talks about making an instant return to playing soccer - in India.

The 38-year-old star - who announced his retirement from the sport last month - has been approached about joining a new franchise-based league of eight teams, which would run from January 14 to March 13, and experts believe he could earn $1.5 million for two months' work.

"Basically Becks can charge whatever he wants. What he would do for the league in terms of international interest and publicity is priceless," a source said.

The former England captain has been approached about playing in the Indian super league - a soccer version of the IPL cricket league - alongside his former England teammate Michael Owen and Spanish star Raul.

Since hanging up his boots last month following the end of the season with French champions Paris Saint Germain, David has been linked to a number of new careers, with movie mogul Harvey Weinstein tipping the soccer star to be a hit in Hollywood.

Victoria Beckham at David's last gameVictoria Beckham cried as David Beckham played his last ever professional football match.

There was no sign of the fashion designer's usual poker face as she choked back sobs watching her husband play his last game for French team Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at the Parc des Princes in Paris on Saturday. The sports star - who announced his retirement on Thursday - was also cheered on by the couple's children, Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 10, Cruz, eight, and 21-month-old daughter Harper, as he battled it out against Brest football club.

Victoria's emotional outburst came after David was mobbed by his teammates and left the pitch in floods of tears when he was substituted in the 81st minute.

The 38-year-old star bowed out of an illustrious career to chants of, "Merci, David," from fans in the stadium, who included former President Nicolas Sarkozy. "It's been very special to finish my career here. It could not have been any more special. I just feel that it's the right time [to retire]. I feel that I've achieved everything that I could in my career. I wanted to go out as a champion. I've finished my career in a team that has treated me like I've been here for 10 years. After 22 years of playing football I'm going to take a few months to enjoy time with my family," David said after the victorious game.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sports,

David BeckhamDavid Beckham is "close to" buying a US soccer team.

The sportsman recently quit Los Angeles Galaxy to focus on "one last challenge" and is thought to be planning to play in Europe but leaving the club doesn't mean he is completely bowing out of the game in America.

Speaking to Ryan Seacrest on Kiis FM, he said, "Yes. That will obviously comes 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. I'm close to a decision on that!"

Announcing the end of his contract with LA Galaxy recently, David spoke about his ownership ambitions.

Tim Burton and Helena Bonham CarterHelena Bonham Carter gets "sent off" by partner Tim Burton if he disapproves of her behavior.

The Dark Shadows actress says the filmmaker - with whom she has two children, Billy, eight, and four-year-old Nell - is obsessed with soccer and mimics the disciplinary process used in the game to reprimand her: "He's become a real soccer fanatic, so he has yellow cards and red cards. I'm always being sent off. It's pretty playful but that's good for me. We do have a laugh!" Helena - who lives in London with Tim and their kids - went on to explain she receives yellow card warnings for things such as twitching eyebrows and moving hands.

In Dark Shadows - a comedy vampire film directed by Tim - Helena plays psychotherapist Dr. Julia Hoffman and based her research for the role on her mother, who held a similar profession. However, the 45-year-old star admits she used to "resent" her parent's job because she always took a professional stance to her daughter's moods when she was younger.

David Beckham’s Daughter Has Expensive Taste

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sports, Celebrity Babies, Style,

David Beckham with daughter HarperDavid Beckham admits he's going to have to earn lots of money to keep daughter Harper dressed in designer outfits. The soccer star has recently signed a new two-year contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy and the handsome athlete admits it's a relief because fashion designer wife Victoria likes to dress the six-month-old tot in expensive clothes.

"I've obviously got three amazing boys and with boys you can throw them around and Harper is obviously my first girl and I'm more careful. Still now, I'm changing her diaper and I can't believe I've got a girl. Everything about her is feminine, the way she eats, the way she moves, the way she looks. I love having a girl, but I'm glad she's got three older brothers and a dad to look after her. Her wardrobe is incredible already. I'm glad I've got a two year contract," said David, speaking in a chat for Google+.

Another reason David, 36, decided to re-sign with the LA Galaxy was because his family are happy in America and he says they will always come first: "I didn't take it lightly as I had offers from other clubs around the world and at 36 you don't expect it. But it was best for my family. We love living in LA at the moment, we love living in America and we have adapted to the culture and at the moment we didn't want to leave. When you're married and have children your priorities totally change. We've got three amazing boys and a little girl we have to look after and it's all about them. They come first."
