“This was an important decision for me,” Beckham said. “I had many offers from clubs from around the world, however, I’m still passionate about playing in America and winning trophies with the Galaxy.”
“I’ve seen first hand how popular soccer is now in the States and I’m as committed as ever to growing the game here,” he added. “My family and I are incredibly happy and settled in America and we look forward to spending many more years here.”
While details of his contract have not been released, reports are saying the superstar turned down an 18-month, $18.7 million dollar deal to play for the French club Paris-St. Germain for a deal worth $15 million!
“I am thrilled that David has chosen to re-join the Galaxy, especially as he had numerous options where he could continue his career,” Galaxy General Manager and Head Coach Bruce Arena said. “I felt that he was one of the best players in all of MLS last season and we could not have achieved the success that we did without him. We look forward to trying to replicate that success this season with David once again in a Galaxy uniform.”
The agreement will be officially announced at a press conference in Los Angeles on Thursday, but we’re already celebrating.
