Shanghai Shenhua offer Beckham £350,000 a week to move to China

Shanghai Shenhua want to tempt departing LA Galaxy star David Beckham to China.

The Sun says Chinese football giants Shanghai Shenhua are said to be willing to pay Becks more than £350,000 a week to uproot wife Victoria and family from LA.

Interested clubs are less interested in former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder Beckham's ball skills than his ability to boost their global TV audience.

Sources in LA said Becks could easily make at least £12million from the deal. One said: "It doesn't matter he isn't the greatest player any more. He makes clubs great in terms of sponsorship. A club could pay him £500,000 a week and it would still be worth it."
