Glamorous soccer star David Beckham and his wife Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham are interested in nabbing the late Gianni Versace’s palatial mansion in Miami Beach, NOWdaily Magazine reported.

Casa Casuarina is slated to head to the auction block on September 17 and could fetch north of $40 million, according to NOWdaily. The current owners had tried to sell the home at 1166 Ocean Drive for north of $125 million last year, the magazine added.

There have been talks of Beckham – a Manchester United and Real Madrid soccer legend who also did a stint at Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Galaxy – starting his own soccer franchise, with Miami emerging as a strong contender for its home base.

“Posh would be in heaven,” a source told NOWdaily. She’s positively drooling at the prospect of living there. It’ll be very much a second home for them because they intend to be based in the UK from now on. But if all goes well with David’s football venture they’ll spend a lot of time in Miami and want a spectacular house right by the water.” [NOWdaily Magazine]Hiten Samtani
