Superstars are always in the news when it comes to the location of their latest luxury holiday home, and what bigger star in there in the sports world than David Beckham? Obviously any rumors about Becks sniffing about beachfront property will make headlines, as they have done already in the past.
The latest bit of gossip is that the former England captain has bought a house that is currently under construction for B 200 million on the island of Ko Samui. It could be the case that Beckham was turned on to the Infinity Samui development by the former England Coach Sven-Goran Eriksson who already has a home there.
In true celebrity style, Beckham’s possible decision to lounge his holidays away in his private community of luxury condos may have come on the wave of a popular trend. It has been reported that a few other sports figures have already bought up plots on Samui; such as Number 1 ranked World Tennis Association player Justine Henin.
Rumors also tell that Beckham invited his England teammate and friend Wayne Rooney to be his neighbour. The buzz was that Beckham would come to Samui to check it all out last 13th, but any news of his arrival is unconfirmed.
