Posh & Becks to Become American Idols

1/11/2007 3:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

As TMZ first reported in July, soccer stud David Beckham and his boney-licious wife, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, are moving to America and setting up digs in Los Angeles.

Beckham is leaving Spanish soccer team Real Madrid at the end of the season to join the Los Angeles Galaxy, a Major League Soccer team. Who knew we had pro soccer teams? The five-year deal could be worth a reported $200 million.

David is no stranger to Southern California, having already set up a local branch of his youth soccer camp, The David Beckham Academy. As for Posh, she can look forward to more shopping excursions with new BFF Katie Holmes.

While they're huge stars in Europe, Posh & Becks have not been able to mimic their media domination on our shores. Could this be an attempt by the supercouple to obtain that same level of fame stateside? We'll see!

Oh great...what happened? Did their own country get tired of their sh*t, and so now they are brining it here?

Don't get so excited with your move, Vick & Dave - Americans aren't gonna treat you like royalty.

That has to be a typo! $200 Million? ... Sorry, but the whole Galaxy franchise is probably worth $20 Million -- Just can't see that happening

They'll do fine. The marketing and sponsorships alone will recover the transfer fee they paid for him. He's not going to make soccer the big thing here in America (it will never be that), but he'll bring in more of a fan base. My wife and sister hate soccer but asked me this morning to make sure I got them tix when L.A. comes to town.

Wasn’t she the one who wore that stupid looking hat to TomKat’s dinner reception? Can we all say, “Look out Hollywood movies, here comes Posh!”

Also, our town Sports Blog is saying he’s making the move for his post-soccer career. Is he a “has been” already?

The British / European thing is kewl. We'll be glad to have them. The LA Galaxy can use an infusion...LA needs another skinny woman, (yeah right) -- let's see what happens. I think Beckham is winding down for retirement soon....and will try to blow some life into the Galaxy Soccer team. What many in the US (and in LA) do not realize is that with all the immigrants here (and not just from Mexico) soccer actually has a decent enough following for him to generate more money and perhaps a few more defections to the Galaxy.
