Beckham could buy LA Galaxy

David Beckham has an option to buy Los Angeles Galaxy when his contract with the MSL team runs out.

The English midfielder will be able to purchase a stake in his own Major League Soccer franchise in 2011, CBS's 60 minutes reported.

Beckham, who could earn his 100th England cap on Wednesday night against France, said his move to the US was not a form of "semi-retirement".

"I'm passionate about the game, I'm passionate about this move, and I'm passionate about the fact that the sport can grow here and the potential is huge here," he said.
