David Beckham Eyes £7m Jet To Be With Family

David Beckham, victoria beckham,
The soccer ace David Beckham, is planning to dish out 7 million pounds on a jet so that he can spend time with his family based in US while he plays in Europe. A true family man.

The multi-millionaire soccer star is eyeing a top-of-the-range plane so that he can shuttle back and forth to US in between games, or even bring them to Europe.

Pals are urging the 33-year-old footballer to snap up a luxury Bombardier Learjet, and he is already in talks to sign a deal with AC Milan so that he can keep his fitness up while his American league shuts down.

Beckham's friends believe that the only way for him to keep up with family life is to spend his extra earnings on a private jet.

With the jet, the former England captain will be able to bring his family— wife 34-year-old Posh and sons Brooklyn, 9, Romeo, 6, and Cruz, 3—to Europe.

"He's doing this to keep himself match-fit for future England games because he's desperate to beat Bobby Moore's 108 outfield caps record," The Daily Star quoted a pal, as saying.

The pal added: "But he's going to have to sacrifice a lot by moving back to Europe in January. The only thing we can think of is if he either buys or rents his own jet for a couple of months.

"He'll be able to fly back to Los Angeles between games and meet up with the family. It might cost a bit but you can't put a price on time with your children."

David said: "Wherever I play and whatever I do in my career, she'll support me. Just because I'm playing in Europe it doesn't mean the whole family must again re-route."
