The teenag­er had pre­vi­ous­ly fol­lowed in his famous father’s foot­steps, David, by becom­ing a pro­fes­sion­al foot­baller — and has now mir­rored his com­mer­cial suc­cess off the pitch, becom­ing at 19 the rich­est of David and Vic­to­ria Beck­ham’s four chil­dren. As report­ed by The Sun, insid­ers have said the very expen­sive deal with the sports­wear giant is the first in a series of lucra­tive col­lab­o­ra­tions to be offered over the next few years.

A source said: ‘Romeo has been paid £ 1.4million for his con­tract to become the new glob­al face of Puma. “He is now the rich­est of the Beck­ham brood and, like his father, he is well on his way to becom­ing a super celebri­ty. “Romeo works real­ly hard and, in addi­tion to putting him­self under pres­sure to suc­ceed on the pitch play­ing for David Inter Miami’s reserve team, Fort Laud­erdale CF, he is also mak­ing a name for him­self among the announc­ers. deal with Puma will hope­ful­ly become a long-stand­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion. “Just as David has worked with Adi­das for over 20 years, it is like­ly that Romeo will do the same with Puma.” He is young and per­fect for their tar­get demo­graph­ic , so for Puma it was worth every penny.

“This is just the first of the big com­mer­cial deals off the pitch for Romeo in his new career as a pro­fes­sion­al foot­baller.” Design­er label Yves Saint Lau­rent has shown real inter­est in Romeo after work­ing with them this sum­mer and he is like­ly that they will try to trap him for anoth­er cam­paign. “The future is very bright for Romeo and it won’t be long before he takes in anoth­er million.”

Romeo, the sec­ond eldest son of ex-Man­ches­ter Unit­ed and Eng­land super­star David, 46, and for­mer Spice Girl Vic­to­ria, 47, splits his time between the Unit­ed States where he plays soc­cer and the UK where the fam­i­ly is based. His broth­er Brook­lyn, 22, also lives in the Unit­ed States with his fiancee, mod­el Nico­la Peltz, and ear­li­er this month start­ed an online cook­ing show. Mean­while, Cruz, 16, and Harp­er, 10, are still at school. Romeo signed for Fort Laud­erdale CF in Sep­tem­ber and has played for the club on sev­er­al occasions.

He made a name for him­self in the fash­ion indus­try and in 2011 he was named Britain’s 26th best dressed man, just eight years old. Two years lat­er, he signed his first big con­tract with Burber­ry and became the star of sev­er­al cam­paigns for the British brand.
