Becks' replica football shirts sales to outstrip �3m charity donation

London, Feb. 3 (ANI): David Beckham's replica football shirts, which cost just 3.50 pounds to make but are sold for 96 pounds, will soon overwhelm the 3 million pounds that the footie ace recently donated to a children's charity and save him taxes of up to 75 percent.

Profit from the sale of merchandising is subjected to just 30 percent in tax across the Channel, the Sun reported.

Former England captain Beckham, 37, is likely to play in fewer than 15 games during his five-month contract with French club Paris Saint-Germain and did not feature in Friday's 4-0 win at Toulouse.

But his shirts are already flying off the shelves from the PSG shop on the Champs-Elysees.

Brands expert Professor Jean-Noel Kapferer forecast that the Hong Kong-made blue and red tops will flood the lucrative Asian and US markets. (ANI)
