Coming To America

David Beckham signed a five-year contract worth more than $250 million to join the Los Angeles Galaxy, making him the highest-paid player in team sports.

The 31-year-old former England captain, soccer's top earner in the three of the past four years, will play in U.S. Major League Soccer beginning in August, the Galaxy said on its Web site today. His agreement with Real Madrid, which he joined in 2003, expires June 30.

``Soccer in the United States is the biggest-played sport up to a certain age, and I want to take it to another level,'' Beckham said in a television interview broadcast by Sky Sports. ``I'm going there to build a team which has a lot of potential, and that excites me.''
