Footie hunk staying in Lake Como

George Clooney is reportedly leasing his lavish villa in Italy to David Beckham.

The pair have become close pals since being introduced by designer Giorgio Armani at a showbiz bash in New York last year.

David, 33, is currently on loan to football club AC Milan.

George‘s gorgeous ‘palazzo’ sits at the edge of Lake Como and he’s allowed David to make himself at home.
