With a backlash of fan reactions since indicating his wish to leave MLS, Beckham is trying to make it clear he still wants to be involved in the game in North America.

"I think soccer in America can one day become very important, and one day, when I retire, I would like to buy a team in Major League Soccer," the LA Galaxy midfielder told Gazzetta Dello Sport. "I want to contribute to the development of soccer in the United States. It is one thing that really excites me and besides that, my family is happy in Los Angeles."
