Becks may lure Ronaldo, Figo & Zidane to America

England soccer star David Beckham`s decision to sign the five-year deal with Los Angeles Galaxy football club, might lead other international football stars to follow his footsteps to America.

London, Jan 13: England soccer star David Beckham's decision to sign the five-year deal with Los Angeles Galaxy football club, might lead other international football stars to follow his footsteps to America.
After the record-breaking 128 million-pound deal, the Major League Soccer (MLS) reportedly hopes that other big names will follow Beckham to America.

Now, Beckham aims to tempt his old Galactico pals Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo and Luis Figo to join the stampede across the Atlantic, reported The Sun.

Ronaldo is also surplus to requirements at Real Madrid and is wanted by New York Red Bulls. Barclays Premiership stars can also expect lucrative offers, although Gary Neville, Beckham's closest friend in football, has other priorities at Manchester United.

The paper quoted Middlesbrough defender Woody as saying: "David's move will be the signal for many others to follow him into the American League. They have made their intentions clear that they want top stars to be part of their football. David is still a fantastic pro and will be very excited about the next step of his career. David going to play in America will be an exciting prospect for them and it will encourage other players to go over and be part of what they're trying to achieve."
