(askmen.com) - David Beckham decided to play soccer in America so his son, Romeo, could receive the best possible epilepsy treatment.
David - who last week agreed a staggering ВЈ128 million deal with the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer club - has apparently been planning to move to the US for months because the world's leading epilepsy experts are based in Los Angeles.
The 31-year-old sports star and his former Spice Girl wife Victoria, 32, reportedly told friends they would move "to the ends of the earth" to get the best care for the four-year-old.
A source said: "The main reason for the move is Romeo. David and Victoria are desperate to find a way to control his epilepsy and have been researching into it. They have discovered that the best place would be Los Angeles, where they even carry out high-tech, experimental surgery to try and control the condition."
Meanwhile, celebrities are flocking to get their hands on soccer tickets to see the former England captain play.
Rod Stewart, Steven Spielberg and Jennifer Lopez are among the stars snapping up season tickets to watch the Los Angeles Galaxy next season.
A source said: "The ticket office has been buzzing. We've never had so many calls."
