File Photo** David Beckham is set to celebrate his 40th birthday this Saturday, May 2nd (2015) *FANS TURN OUT FOR BECKHAM More than 3,000 soccer fans joined the international media on Friday (13Jul07) to officially welcome DAVID BECKHAM to Los Angeles. The soccer stud, his wife Victoria and three sons arrived in Los Angeles on Thursday evening (12Jul07) and were mobbed by paparazzi and fans at LAX airport. The family has left Europe to start a new life in Los Angeles in support of the former England captain's new career with Major League Soccer team the L.A. Galaxy. The soccer star is expected to earn a base salary of over $5 million (GBP2.5 million) for every year he spends at the Galaxy. He is expected to more than double that through endorsements and bonuses. He is expected to earn $250 million (GBP125 million) over five years. Beckham was introduced to fans and the media at a press conference held minutes ago at the Galaxy's Home Depot Center stadium in Carson, California. After holding up his new number 23 shirt, the sportsman addressed fans and the media, saying, "In my career, I've played for two of the biggest club sides in the world, Manchester United and Real Madrid, and I've played for 11 years for my country, and still am playing for my country. "I've always looked for challenges in my career, and something exciting in my life... My family has now moved to Los Angeles... something we're very proud of and, in our life, everything's perfect."
