Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sports, Rumors

David BeckhamDavid Beckham is in talks about making an instant return to playing soccer - in India.

The 38-year-old star - who announced his retirement from the sport last month - has been approached about joining a new franchise-based league of eight teams, which would run from January 14 to March 13, and experts believe he could earn $1.5 million for two months' work.

"Basically Becks can charge whatever he wants. What he would do for the league in terms of international interest and publicity is priceless," a source said.

The former England captain has been approached about playing in the Indian super league - a soccer version of the IPL cricket league - alongside his former England teammate Michael Owen and Spanish star Raul.

Since hanging up his boots last month following the end of the season with French champions Paris Saint Germain, David has been linked to a number of new careers, with movie mogul Harvey Weinstein tipping the soccer star to be a hit in Hollywood.
