London: If reports are to be believed England’s iconic footballer David Beckham, who recently announced his retirement, is planning to buy his own football club.

“Anything is a possibility. It became part of the negotiations that in retrospect turned out to be a good deal for Major League Soccer and a good deal for Beckham,” Don Garber, commissioner of the USA’s Major League Soccer was quoted as saying by the Mirror.

According to the report, there is a special clause in Beckham’s clause in his US contract which if triggered will enable him to buy a team in America.
