Both.  He had a terrible season with Real Madrid (sitting on the bench most of the time) and was just dropped from the English national  team.  He realized in LA he would get a lot of play time AND a lot of money so it's a win-win situation for him.....  Also, he can make a big impact in the USA and still have a chance to play in the World Cup for England again so this could actuallty help his career a lot.

Pele and Chinaglia came to the US to retire and could no longer play world class football when he played in the US......

It is the same as with Pele and Franz Beckenbauer. Both were somewhat old (over 30) and their contracts with    european top-teams expired.
It was very unlikely that they would have got another very well paid contract with a top-club so they went to Cosmos New York were they earned a heck of a lot money and had the status of superstars (due to lack of competition in the us-league).
It´s the same with Beckham now he will earn millions for playing against second class players but I think that the officials at the MLS hope that his still somewhat great name will give a boost to the us-soccer when it comes to popularity.
I think it´s the best thing he could do, or at least the best paid thing^^

Money ... and possibly the needs of his image-centric, publicity-hungry, stick-thin wife
