David Beckham's legacy is one that is rarely matched in society.
A world-class footballer during his career that saw him win an abundance of trophies at Manchester United before becoming a 'Galactico' in 2004 when making the move to Real Madrid, the ex-England captain certainly has a taste for success.
It was during his sporting career when Beckham first began accruing his wealth through lucrative partnerships with the likes of Brylcreem and Adidas. Showing a fine eye for business, the former midfield star's £26million contract with LA Galaxy presented him a chance to own an MLS team in the future which was an opportunity he grabbed with the creation of Inter Miami.

While the heights of his success is almost unheard of from an ex-footballer, it certainly doesn't diminish what the other members of the famed Class of '92 of Manchester United have been able to achieve following their sporting days.
