image for Beckham signs $10millon deal to play with himself
Beckham and team mates celebrate another own goal.

International soccer commercial David Beckham has shrugged off his contracts with the LA Galaxy and AC Milan to continue his playing future in the only team that he believes can sustain him.

Beckham has formed his own team to revolve entirely around him, managed by him and with a playing roster including only the world highest profile soccer player. Becks is hoping the team, which will play in every major league division in the world, will impress upon international selectors that he is suitable for selection in the English national squad.

"And that's all they need" he told a packed press conference. "The English team made entirely of David Beckham. And maybe Rooney" the great one conceded. "You know, to bring me my drink bottle and answer my phone."

The negotiations for Beckhams contract to the Beckham team were said to be quite heated at some stages as he insisted with himself that he was worth more than he was willing to offer himself.

Further sticking points, such as Beckhams 78 years of age, were also contentious but eventually he backed down and agreed to sign himself to a one year ten million dollar contract. In spite of the wrangling, David Beckham is said to be delighted with the new deal and so is his new team.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
