As bookmaker Ladbrokes offers odds of 6/4 that David Beckham would be knighted within a year, we ask whether the richest football player in the world should be made a Sir.
How does the richest football player in the world get richer? By retiring. David Beckham could see his personal fortune rise to as much as £300m, marketing experts said today.
The 38-year-old can concentrate solely on his commercial career, with marketing experts predicting his ‘unique’ appeal will last for the next 20 years.
And already there is speculation that Beckham, who was awarded an OBE in 2003, will soon be knighted for his services to football. Bookmaker Ladbrokes offered odds of 6/4 that he would become Sir David within a year.
The Beckhams are already one of the richest celebrity couples in the country with a combined fortune estimated to be worth £190m.
