In 1998, Magazine Predicted What David Beckham Would Look Like In 2020

David Beckham is a bit of catch, isn't he? In fact, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder was voted 'The Sexiest Man Alive' by People Magazine in 2015 because, well, just look at the bloke.

For decades, Beckham has successfully won the hearts of a global audience, not only for his talent on the football pitch, but for his good natured, humble attitude off it.

I mean, this was his response to being named 'The Sexiest Man Alive' by People Magazine in 2015:

"I never feel that I'm an attractive, sexy person,"he said. "I mean I like to wear nice clothes and nice suits and look and feel good, but I don't ever think of myself that way."

But Becks' striking good looks, and his teeth for that matter, were supposed to deteriorate over time, according to an incredible snippet from a 1998 edition of FourFourTwo magazine.

While at a Car Boot sale earlier, Twitter user Ian Walker stumbled across some old mags.

And as he was browsing through, a certain page predicting what David would look like in 2020 caught the eye.


I'm sorry to be the one to break it to you, Becks, but you're in for a really tough 12 months or so if the above prediction is correct.

In all seriousness though, the 43-year-old will he hoping to see success with his latest franchise Inter Miami, who are due to enter Major League Soccer in 2020.
