Beckham leaving L.A. Galaxy after six seasons

Los Angeles Galaxy star David Beckham will be leaving the team after the MLS Cup game December 1, team officials announced Monday.

Monday's announcement comes ten months after he signed a new two-year contract with the team, turning his back on a number of offers from leading European clubs.

Romeo Beckham

The 8-year-old son of soccer superstar David Beckham and former Spice Girl (Posh) Victoria Beckham is one of Britain’s most stylish men, according GQ magazine in the UK.

The youngster came in No. 26 in GQ’s annual ranking of Britain’s 50 most stylish men. That puts Romeo one spot in front of the recently engaged Prince William but 10 spots behind his L.A. Galaxy midfielder father.

GQ calls the Beckhams' middle child “a frighteningly tuned-in (and well-connected) eight-year-old.” Not shocking for a boy who last year signed a deal to design his own line of sunglasses.

Top on the list is “Kick-Ass” and “Nowhere Boy” actor Aaron Johnson.

Other notables include Prince Harry at No. 5, British Prime Minister David Cameron at No. 20, singer Elton John at No. 21 and actor Daniel Day-Lewis at No. 50.
