Soccer anyone? Beckham to play in US league

Old news but Beckham to play in US

Beckham, the former English captain who joins the Los Angeles Galaxy this summer, has $6.5 million in guaranteed income that includes a $5.5 million base salary this year, the union said. That's 10 times more than what any player is getting outside the top six.

I never thought US soccer can afford this kind of money

MLS is not paying all his salary.
Sponsors will pay the rest.

Why would sponsors pay the rest
The contract is from the team/MLS not a commercial ad

Beckham is just overated to start off with, just because he is better looking than Ronaldo doesnt mean he should gets paid as much as him when he can't even play as well
