At the beginning of 2007 we just got this piece of news: David Beckham will leave Real Madrid after four seasons.  He will join MSL´s LA Galaxy at the end of the season.

The former England captain will sign a five-year deal, worth 250 million euros.  In a statement, Beckham said: "I would like to thank the supporters and people of Madrid who have made my family and I feel so welcome in my time here, making this an extremely difficult decision to make".

"I have enjoyed my time in Spain enormously and I am extremely grateful to the club for giving me the opportunity to play for such a great team and their amazing fans".

"I am proud to have played for two of the biggest clubs in football and I look forward to the new challenge of growing the world's most popular game in a country that is as passionate about its sport as my own".

For those that don't know Becks... let's start this blog!
