“Golden Balls”,David Becks is scouting for a perfect asian city to open his next footy academy to go with those he runs in London and Los Angeles.

“We’re looking from the Pacific to the Middle East and anywhere in between,” Ed Cunningham of AEG, partners in the project with 19 Entertainment, told Reuters.

“It’s not a matter of which city wants it, but of where’s best to put it.

“We’d like it to be a hub for children from all over Asia.”

As a child, Beckham attended a soccer school run by former England and Manchester United player Bobby Charlton and wants to pass on similar experiences to the next generation.

Hmmm…..where should he open his asian academy? among the shortlisted should be somewhere in Japan,Beijing,Kuala Lumpur or maybe in Seoul,Korea.

Where do you think would be his next target?

My bet is on China.
