MLS calling – January 2007
In one of the biggest shocks in football history, Beckham announced that he would be joining the Los Angeles Galaxy in a £128million deal.
The US league was held in anything but high regard, but the midfielder made it his personal aim to help take the game to the next level.
Sure enough, more big names followed, whilst gates and television audiences increased. He ended his stay in America with two MLS Cup titles, and proved many of the doubters wrong during five fantastic years.
