David Beckham has amassed an incredible fortune during his career.

According to The Times, the Englishman, alongside his wife Victoria, have a combined net worth of £380m. 

And they're set to get even richer.

That's because, according to the Sun, David has agreed to become the face of the Qatar World Cup.

Beckham has signed a £15million-per-year over the next decade to become the country’s ambassador.

That means he will earn a staggering £150m over that time frame.

Beckham recently flew into Qatar's capital, Doha, for a week touring ­stadiums and meeting dignitaries ahead of the tournament.

The 46-year-old already has links with Qatar after he spent half-a-year playing at PSG, who are owned by Qatar Investment Authority.

Beckham will also promote tourism and culture in the country.

The deal could be regarded as controversial given concerns over Qatar's human rights record.

The Manchester United legend was assured fans would be safe and allowed to display rainbow flags in stadiums. He consulted with his wife before penning the deal.

A source told the Sun: “David believes in Qatar’s commitment to progress and that the World Cup - the first to be held in the Arab world - can effect significant positive change.

“He strongly believes in the power of football to bridge differences but, crucially, has seen the progress on issues that matter.”

"As we reach the one year to go point he will join the wider football community that is coming together for the World Cup 2022 and he’s looking forward to what he thinks will be a great tournament.”
