60 Minutes: Beckham Has Option to Buy MLS Team

The CBS New Magazine 60 Minutes is set to report in a show airing this Sunday that DAVID BECKHAM HAS AN OPTION TO BUY AN MLS TEAM WHEN HIS GALAXY DEAL RUNS OUT

CNN's Anderson Cooper's interview of Beckham, in which he demonstrates his famous "bend it" soccer kick, will be broadcast this Sunday, March 23, at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

Beckham, together with his manager Simon Fuller, the man who created "American Idol," will have an option to buy their own Major League Soccer franchise sometime in 2011, at the end of Beckham’s Galaxy contract.

There's no word on whether this would be an existing team or a new team or a team that has already been identified privately.

According to the 60 Minutes website, Tim Leiweke says that Beckham's income from his contract arrangements with the Galaxy have already exceeded projections.
