David Beckham is one of the most well-known names in the world, not just in the soccer world.
He is a marketing machine and was a part of the most successful Manchester United team to date. He has led MLS into national standing in the United States, with just his presence alone. He has inspired a generation of youth to play soccer.
He is the Most Interesting Man in the—oops. Wrong area. You get the picture though. David Beckham is not only a great face for soccer, he is a genuinely good talent. There is a reason why he came up through the Manchester United youth system.
Arsenal are in the need of a captain. A figurehead. Someone to inspire the team when they are down and lead the team to victory. Some with experience. Someone who has played at the top level. Someone who has played for the best teams in England, Spain, Italy and the United States.
Wait a second.
That sounds a little bit like David Beckham. His contract expires at the end of this MLS season. Maybe Arsenal should sign him!
