Britain’s Daily Mirror reported that David Beckham was paid £ 40 million over three years to appear as an icon in FIFA 21 and future games.
EA Sports told PC Gamer that they had seen reports on the terms of the agreement to bring David Beckham back to the EA SPORTS FIFA game and did not disclose specific details but made sure that the figures reported were completely sensational and in no way accurate.
However, these reports revealed Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
A tweet was also received by former FIFA cover star Gareth Bale, who is currently on Spurs.
The background of this event is an ongoing battle between certain football managers and FIFPro, the body that is supposed to represent the interests of football players. Ibrahimovic’s representation was swift, and what this mainly came about is that high profile actors wanted to negotiate separate image rights.
A key difference with Beckham is that he is retired from gaming, EA Sports being the official video game partner of both AC Milan (Ibrahimovic) and Tottenham (Bale), the deals that will include the rights of club players, jerseys, and stadiums. So things are mixed.
