David Beckham to rent Miami apartment

DAVID Beckham wants to rent an apartment in Miami.

The retired sportsman is launching a Major League Soccer (MLS) team in Florida, but he's not keen on buying a property as his wife Victoria and their children - Brooklyn, 14, Romeo 11, Cruz, eight, and Harper, two - will be splitting their time between New York and London.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: "She [Victoria] has not been down here [Miami] with him in months.

"She's concentrating on her fashion business in London and New York."

Meanwhile, the 38-year-old hunk had been eyeing a 12-acre site in Port Miami to build a 25,000-40,000 seat stadium for his new soccer team.

However, as well as facing competition for the prestigious land, Royal Caribbean Cruises - who also want to develop the site - have objected to the plans due to traffic concerns and fears their parking lot, daycare centre and staff gym would have to relocate to accommodate the project.

A source said previously: "The land Beckham wants is very coveted. The cruise lines want the land, the city wants the land, and developers want the land, so there is definitely going to have to be a lot of politics involved. Beckham is doing a big push for that site, but he's far from getting it."
