  One hairdo per season for Beckham
Updated 17 February 2002, 15.38
Beckham and his hairdos
David Beckham may soon have to decide which hairstyle's his favourite if Manchester United have their way.

Apparently, Old Trafford bosses are going to make it part of his new contract that he only has one new hairdo per season, reports the News of the World newspaper.

Cut and dried contract

The club is said to be tearing their hair out because when he changes his 'do', it means they have to change all their Beckham merchandise, like T-shirts too.

And it's costing a fortune to do that!

When top players like Becks sign contracts with clubs, they also sign away the rights to their 'image'.

Part of the arguments over Becks' new contract are thought to be down to him asking for an extra 1m a year for the right to exploit his image.

So if Man Utd bosses agree on the proposed salary of 100,000 per week for the star player, they won't have to keep up with his changing style so much!
