Beckham, who announced his retirement from soccer in 2013 after a 20-year tenure, has lucrative deals with companies such as Haig Club Whisky, H&M and Adidas, making him one of the highest-earning retired athletes.

He has taken a total of £45 million over the past five years in dividends and his estimated personal fortune is about £165 million.

The publication reports that last weekend, Beckham’s London-based Footwork Productions Ltd reported a £6,28 million drop in turnover during 2016, from £14,3 million to £8,02 million.
