A strange exchange of shares could make David Beckham the new president of Málaga football club. It is well known that the current owner wants to offload his shares in the club and could have offered them to the ex-Real Madrid player in exchange for shares that Beckham owns in two Arab football clubs.
Malaga fans could have a world famous president. According to a report in the Los Angeles Times David Beckham could acquire 75% of the shares together with the American ex footballer and former president of Los Angeles Galaxy, Alexia Lalas.
However, Moayad Shatat, executive vice president of the Malaga club, said he is not aware of the operation, although the news has spread like wildfire over the Internet on fan forums.
It has also been reported that the initials MFC, apart from standing for Malaga Football Club could have been confused with MFC in America, a financial corporation called Malaga Bank.
All of this may come to absolutely nothing, but if there is any truth in the rumours, Beckham certainly would be the person to put Malaga club definitely on the map, especially in the light of Malaga’s up and coming season in the Champions League.
