David Beckham to Host Sports Talk Show
David Beckham is being inundated with offers to host his own talk show.
The 37-year-old footballer - whose rolling one year contract with Los Angeles Galaxy is up for renewal in December - has reportedly been offered the chance to front his own sports show by Time Warner Cable. A source told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper, "We want David on board whether or not he continues to play for the Galaxy. We are on our way to becoming the world's biggest sportscaster and he is a key part of our future."
The insider said that the US-based company has offered the midfielder a "multi-million" contract and is "desperate" to secure the father-of-four to host a twice-weekly show on its new sports network. The proposed format would see David interview his fellow athletes, discuss tactics and give him "free reign" to cover any sports of his choice.
But rivals FOX are said to be hashing out a massive counter offer in a desperate bid to lure the successful British star to its network and he is considering his options after being advised to cash-in on his celebrity status.
David and his 38-year-old wife Victoria are currently settled in Los Angeles with their children - Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, seven-year-old Cruz, and 15-month-old daughter Harper - but are also said to be considering a move to New York so she can concentrate on her fashion line. "Everything is up for discussion at the moment. David may well choose to stay at his team LA Galaxy, or he may leave and retire from football. There are big conversations to be had. Victoria is keen to move to New York to set up her business there and open her first store. She looked at a school while she was there. There are also business opportunities for David, too," a source said.
