Reports of modern day footballing icon David Beckham's deal with EA Sports' FIFA 21 by The Mirror have turned out to be untrue.

Beckham is the new cover star for FIFA 21 'Next Gen', thus appearing on the cover of the famous game for the first time since he did, 23 years ago.

Beckham was previously a brand ambassador for PES and now, he has been included as an icon in all three versions of himself. One can also play with Beckham's card in VOLTA football.

Contrary to reports, a spokesperson from EA Sports has slammed all rumours regarding the financials involved in the deal.

An official statement from EA's spokesperson read, "We’ve seen the reports on the terms of our deal to bring David Beckham back into our EA SPORTS FIFA game. We don't disclose specific details, but we can be definitive that the figures being reported are being completely sensationalized and are in no way accurate.”

Beckham is a right sided midfielder in all three cards but his best card which is 92 rated can be played as a central midfielder.

He does have relatively slower pace and a lowly rated weak foot but there is no doubt one can do wonders with the delivery Beckham's right foot will be able to give in-game.

The former Manchester United great will be added in the game on December 15 and fans will have access to his untradeable item on Ultimate Team if they play FIFA 21.
