Are Beckhams moving to New York?

Washington: David and Victoria Beckham, who currently live in Los Angeles, are apparently moving to New York.

The couple, who have homes in their native London and the South of France, are now set to splash out on a luxurious Manhattan home as fashion designer Victoria wants to be there for her work, reports Contactmusic.

Victoria reportedly told a friend: "My work is so important to me and LA just isn’t a real fashion city."

A source told Now magazine: "Her friendship group in LA has disbanded and David was travelling a lot more than she’d anticipated and so was she. It just seemed to make sense for her to be based in fashion capital New York. It’s closer to London and Europe for her business meetings."

However, David, who plays soccer for Los Angeles Galaxy, still has a contract with his club so the couple - who have three sons together - will keep their Beverly Hills home, which he will use as base while playing.

The source added: "David’s used to flying a lot but this will be the first time he’s been permanently based so far from his team. If he has a few games in a row, he’ll stay in Los Angeles. This isn’t a decision they’ve come to lightly. They still like LA and have no plans to sell their home there but being based in Hollywood doesn’t appeal to them anymore and they feel it’s time for a change."
