David Beckham - David Beckham to launch sportswear range
David Beckham is reportedly in talks with a number of investors to back an upcoming sportswear range which he is said to have designed himself.
David Beckham could be set to launch his own sportswear range.
The former soccer star - who retired last year after a spell at French club Paris Saint-Germain - is said to be in talks with a number of possible investors, including Hong Kong-based Li & Fung, to create a line of casual ready-to-wear garments, according to WWD.
The 38-year-old sportsman could follow in the footsteps of his wife Victoria Beckham, with whom he has four children, 15-year-old Brooklyn, 11-year-old Romeo, nine-year-old Cruz and two-year-old daughter Harper, to become a fully-fledged fashion designer if he expands on his current portfolio.
David has previously designed collections for popular sports brand Adidas and for Swedish high-street chain H&M, as well as appearing in advertising campaigns for Emporio Armani, Breitling for Bentley and Belstaff.
Not wanting to turn his back on his past as a world class footballer, the father-of-four is preparing to launch his own Major League Soccer (MLS) team in Miami, Florida, but rather than buying a property he is said to be looking to rent an apartment in the city so his family can continue to split their time between New York and London.
A source said previously: ''[Victoria] has not been down here [Miami] with him in months. She's concentrating on her fashion business in London and New York.''
