David Beckham is poised to become a big name in U.S. major league soccer. In 2014, David Beckham’s long-time dream came true after he launched the Miami-based Major League Soccer franchise. And now he is busy scouting for partners to get his team off the ground. Recently, the National reported that David Beckham’s Miami Beckham United was holding investment talks with the deep-pocketed Qatar Sports Investment group for a long-term business partnership, which will help finance David’s soccer franchise.

David Beckham’s involvement with the Qatari group dates back to the time when he was still playing. Back then, the Qataris brought David Beckham to play for their French team, Paris Saint-Germain. Since then, David Beckham has maintained close ties with the group and has made his presence felt in a number of sporting events in Qatar.
And apart from focusing on his business initiatives, David Beckham is also enjoying his time in Los Angeles by spending time with his family, especially his children, who have accompanied him to his Los Angeles home for the summer.

David Beckham and his wife and children have been going on plenty of outings to make the most of their summer vacation. The Mirror reported that David Beckham went hiking in Los Angeles along with his 4-year-old daughter, Harper, and his wife, Victoria Beckham.
David Beckham made the trip as fun as possible for Harper by carrying her on his shoulders, along with a backpack.
“Sunday morning hike”
In yet another trip with his sons, Romeo and Cruz, David Beckham attended an LA Lakers game, where he caught up with his old soccer friends Steven Gerrard and Robbie Keane, who currently play for the Los Angeles Galaxy. And the Mirror reports that there was a moment of delight for his boys when they were presented with the opportunity to pose with Floyd Mayweather, the undefeated former boxing ace and five-division world champion.
“Boys excited to meet the champ”
The boxing legend had also come to watch the basketball game, and he was more than happy to meet David Beckham and his family.
David Beckham reportedly enjoyed a camping trip in the desert with his friends amidst rumors that he and Victoria Beckham will be spending a special occasion apart. The Daily Star reported that the Beckham couple may not be spending their 17th wedding anniversary together because Victoria Beckham needs to attend a high-profile Haute Couture fashion week event in Paris.
However, the news did not deter David Beckham from enjoying his camping trip in the desert. The former English soccer captain camped under the stars at Lazy Sky, a retreat near Joshua Tree National Park in California. David Beckham’s Instagram post revealed that the soccer champion had a great time with his friends, and the group enjoyed the campfire under the stars in the cold night.
Meanwhile, when he’s not hanging out with his family, David Beckham is busy getting new tattoos on various parts of his body. E! Online reported that David Beckham added yet another tattoo to his ever-growing collection and unveiled his latest design on Instagram.
“Great new piece from Mark Mahoney at shamrock…. Always nice to sit and listen to marks conversation for 5 hours whilst watching him work… True artist”
The tattoo design is reminiscent of Renaissance art, and it took five hours to complete the work. It’s obvious that David Beckham loves tattoos, and each of the numerous tattoo designs covering his body seems to have a special backstory and significance to the former soccer star. David Beckham has previously said that some of his tattoos are dedicated to the important people in his life, including his wife and his children. It is obvious that family is one of the most important priorities in David Beckham’s life.
