Re: David Beckham to the MLS!!!
In Oz they have disclosed some portions of Becks salary and the base is nowhere near 50 a year. There are set benchmarks which have to be met. Some are performance related on Becks side and others are merchandise and attendance related as well. If those targets are met then its 50.
Supposedly when Becks signed with Real all Real merchandise sold out on that day. Also its interesting that Real has just recently taken over from ManU as the richest soccer club in the world.
Still 50 for a guy who doesn't make the Real run on squad or the English national squad is like signing Bernie Williams to play CF for 20 milliion a year.
