David Beckham Will Earn More From FIFA 21 Than He Did At Manchester United And PSG

David Beckham Will Earn More From FIFA 21 Than He Did At Manchester United And PSG

David Beckham is reportedly earning more money from being in FIFA 21 than he did in his playing career.

The former England captain is the new cover star for the next-gen version of FIFA 21, following up his appearance on the cover 23 years ago.

Beckham, who had previously been an ambassador for rivals PES, has finally been included as an Icon with three different versions of him from his glittering stint at the top level - as well as being playable in the VOLTA football section of the game.

But even for someone who has various endorsements and partnerships, it's a seriously lucrative deal that the Real Madrid and Manchester United legend has bagged with EA Sports.

The Mirror say a three-year contract worth £40 million was eventually agreed after an initial first offer of £30 million was presented but renegotiated.

It means he is reportedly, collecting an insane £256,000-per-week without even needing to kick a ball. His likeness in the virtual football game, combined with his marketability, is enough to see Beckham receive an absolute fortune.

A statement read: "We've seen the reports on the terms of our deal to bring David Beckham back into our EA Sports FIFA game.

"We don't disclose specific details, but we can definitive that the figures being reported are being completely sensationalised and are in no way accurate."

Beckham is a right-midfielder for all three cards but his prime card, 92 rated, can be played as a central midfielder and comes with a slew of impressive statistics such as 87 shooting, 95 passing and 88 dribbling.

He only has three star weak foot and skill moves in addition to relatively low pace but you just know Beckham will be providing trademark delightful crosses on a sixpence for strikers in the virtual world.

'Golden Balls' is being added in on 15 December and fans will have access to an untradeable Becks item on Ultimate Team if they play FIFA 21.

The free card will hark back to his first season at Real Madrid in 2003/04.
