Beckhams’ Retreat

by | 15th, January 2007

small_171140_1_1168937600.jpg ON a recent tour of America, Real Madrid players David Beckham and Roberto Carlos, the Brazilian footballer, marvelled at how they could walk about the place unmolested.

Perhaps America would offer Beckham sanctuary from the rigours of fame and fortune? Perhaps in America, Beckham could learn to breathe again, to spend his fortune without fear of offending a sponsor or attracting the attentions of an ambitious PA or model?

And he is prepared to sacrifice much, even his competitive playing career, to get it.

The Mirror has a picture of Beckham gazing into the screen on his mobile phone.

What is he reading? Surely not a message from pig tosser Rebecca Loos? Isn’t this the kind of thing Beckham seeks to escape over in America, the land of the free?

No longer is Dave even parading his talents on a patch of grass in Madrid with “BECKHAM” writ in lettering across his back. Becks sits in the stands at Real Madrid’s stadium. He is removed from the action, just another face in the crowd.

But even a would-be recluse needs a home, a cave with bedrooms, a media room and a waterfall. And while David takes a back seat, Victoria Beckham goes shopping for property.

Dressed in a plain black top, dark grey trousers and black sunglasses, wrapped in a plain black convoy of SUVs and limos, Posh moves with a Ninja-like invisibility across some prime Californian real estate.
