Tom Cruise to be Beckham's boss?

Tom Cruise is reportedly launching a $80 million (NZ$104m) takeover bid of friend David Beckham's new soccer club.

The Hollywood actor is a huge soccer fan and wants to give his financial backing to the Los Angeles Galaxy.

A source said: "To have Tom's backing would be amazing - there's no way Galaxy bosses would turn down that opportunity."

Beckham signed for Galaxy this January on a reported £128 million five-year deal although he doesn't start playing for them until next month.

Cruise watched Beckham at Real Madrid's home ground the Bernabeu on Sunday to see the Spanish team win the league title.

He was joined in the stands by wife Katie Holmes and the sport ace's wife Victoria and their three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.

After seeing Beckham's team crowned as champions, the two couples celebrated into the early hours with a meal in an exclusive Madrid restaurant, followed by dancing at a local club.

They finally left for home at 7am the next morning.
