• International heartthrob David Beckham made a staggering £50.5million last year
  • Second highest placed sportsman after former US basketball star Michael Jordan

Loved and adored by millions, ex-footballer and model David Beckham’s earnings have sky rocketed since hanging up his football boots. Last year the former England captain raked in an impressive £50.5 million, mainly due to two mega deals that contributed £13.5million alone.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid winger’s earnings mainly come from endorsements, his H&M underwear range and aftershave range. However Becks only ranks at number two of former sportsmen, with legendary basketball player Michael Jordan cementing the top spot.

Where next for brand Beckham? With the long anticipated and rumoured launch of David Beckham’s Miami soccer team, ‘Goldenballs’ will have his hands full driving the football club forward to not just compete in the MLS division but also take it by storm. One thing's for certain, from his initial East End life David Beckham has built an envious brand that continues to go from strength to strength.
