What could one man possibly spend £34k on a day?!
This is an obscene amount of money for a retiree.
Anyway, turns out the one they call "Goldenballs" earned a salary of £12.7million in the last year, just from his image rights and over the past five years, he's kicked goals in the bank to the tune of £45million.
This image of David Beckham probably earned him £20k. Maybe.
That's right, you slap "David Beckham" on something and the 42-year-old hears "ka-ching!"
Years after retiring from professional football, he still has lucrative deals with Haig Club Whisky, H&M and Adidas - helping him rake in more money than some of the top current players, and making him one of the top-earning retired players.
However, in some sad news for his accountant, Beck's wallet has taken a slight hit this year, as in 2016 he was said to have pocked £71k a day .
It's a hard knock life.

Last weekend his London-based Footwork Productions Ltd took a loss (in laymans terms), charting a reported £6.28million drop in turnover during 2016, from £14.3million to £8.02million, with *just* £263,000 in assets compared to £7.21million in 2015.

Still, having raked in a personal fortune of a tidy £165m after his time as a key midfielder for Manchester United that unlocked a door to a world of endorsements, contracts and very, very lucrative football salaries with other clubs such as LA Galaxy - of which according to Forbes he earned a base salary of £9m in 2012 just to be on the field - and Real Madrid .
That dosh came in handy recently, with wife Victoria Beckham borrowing nearly £7million from the Bank of Beckham, to cash up the coffers of her fashion label that suffered a £4.6m loss.
Still, Brand Beckham is said to be worth £500million, so we doubt we'll see Vicky cutting up coupons just yet.
It really does pay to bend is like Beckham.
