David Beckham will be earning 500 times more each week than most of his team-mates at Los Angeles Galaxy next season after agreeing the richest deal in world sport.
The former England captain has signed a five-year contract with the club and Major League Soccer (MLS) worth an astonishing £128million ($250 million). He will leave Real Madrid at the end of this season and join the Galaxy in August.
News of the mega-deal has already led to a backlash from other pros in the States, including his fellow former Manchester United trainee and team-mate Terry Cooke.
Under MLS rules, each side is allowed one star player who does not come under the salary cap - but the budget for the rest of the squad is limited to around £1million, or £50,000 per player per season.
