DRAGUIGNAN: English footballing superstar David Beckham has bought a country estate in the Var region in the south east of France, it was revealed yesterday.
Rather than looking for property in Madrid, following heated speculation the England skipper might jump ship from Manchester United to Real Madrid this summer, 28-year-old Beckham and his wife Victoria have plumped for the estate set on 100 hectares at a cost of 2mil euros.
“The deal has been agreed, though the contract remains to be signed,” a St-Tropez-based estate agent, who has been in contact with Beckham's agent said.
According to the agent both Beckham and Victoria, known as ‘Posh Spice’, visited the Domaine St Vincent two months ago and fell in love with it immediately. – AFP
