It was initially believed that David Beckham would earn £40 million in return for his appearance on the EA Sports title, but EA has stated that this is false.

A spokesperson from EA has said: “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.”
