Is David Beckham going to trade in his cleats for a talk show mic?

The soccer superstar phoned into Ryan Seacrest's radio show Thursday morning to address rumors that after his expected departure from the Los Angeles Galaxy after Saturday's MLS Cup Final he's looking to make like Oprah Winfrey and Anderson Cooper before him and host his own gabfest.

"The talk show is not true. Not that I know of," the 37-year-old Beckham said, noting that the first time he had heard of it was on his way into work while listening to a segment by Ryan's sidekick Ellen K.

He continued: "There's a lot of rumors about where I'm going to play, what we're going to do, where we're going to live. There has always been…We actually haven't made up our minds about where we are going to end up. But it's a big decision to make. We've been here for six years."

The English midfielder otherwise known to his female fans as Becks has previously indicated he's fielding a lot of options—from moving back to the U.K. and playing there to joining a club in another country.

When asked by Seacrest if he might also be considering buying his own soccer team in the future, Beckham said it was a possibility.

"I might not be playing here, but I will become an owner of a franchise and it's something that I'm excited about," the former England captain added. "We're close to a decision on that, but I can't say it right now. I'm close to a decision on that!"

Last but not least, Beckham also revealed he's got a restaurant venture cooking with Kitchen Nightmares' celebrity chef and good buddy Gordon Ramsay.

"We've got something in the pipeline. That will be made aware pretty soon as well," he said. "We're awfully good friends, and we're excited about a project we are putting together!"
