MLS add up the benefit of Beckham swoop

Major League Soccer chiefs are working out the financial implications of what they see as a 'terrific' chance to bring former England captain David Beckham to the United States.

Beckham's contract at Real Madrid expires at the end of the season, and he will be allowed to speak to other clubs from January 1 if he does not pen a new deal by then.

The Los Angeles Galaxy have confirmed their interest in signing the 31-year-old, whose protracted contract negotiations with Real remain ongoing.

MLS commissioner Don Garber has now claimed officials are currently doing their sums to see if the league would get a return - in sponsorship and ticket sales - on any potential investment in Beckham.

'We're doing analysis and we should complete that in the next 30 days,' said Garber.

'We'd certainly like to see him here.

'Beckham is a cultural world icon - and if we can get him in this league, people will care and they'll come out and see our games.

'If we could have him here we think it would be terrific.'

Garber acknowledges Beckham would serve as a great marketing tool for MLS but notes the former Manchester United star still has a role to play on the pitch.

'It's a marketing opportunity, and this is a guy who was one of the better players on the English national team during the World Cup - so he is a player we think is very strong,' he told Bloomberg Radio.

In order to sign Beckham, MLS would need to alter their salary cap rules. At present, teams can spend no more than 1.9 million US dollars per season on salary.

Beckham, who has struggled to secure a first-team spot at Real this season under new coach Fabio Capello, has a football academy in Los Angeles.
