MLS commissioner Don Garber claims that David Beckham will be able to transform the league when his new franchise team finally comes into play.
Beckham is regarded as one of the iconic players to have represented in the Major League Soccer, which has been around for the last decade. The major boost to the popularity of the competition came when Beckham arrived on a free transfer from Real Madrid in the summer of 2005. Beckham was able to agree a whopping $ 250 million deal with the MLS for playing in this division. His presence boosted the profile of the league, and it also helped Beckham agree the potential option of starting a franchise at a subsidised cost.
