Beckham was speaking at the launch of his new Major League Soccer franchise in Miami, the city to which he dreams of bringing some of football's leading players, when he was asked about Chile forward Sanchez's recent switch to Old Trafford.
With film star looks and Spice Girl wife Victoria, Beckham was one of the most marketable football players in the world over the course of his playing his career - even though he lacked the playing talent of contemporaries such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Zinedine Zidane.
Although team officials will not be providing additional details on the franchise for a few days, the new club already has a following.
They were warmly welcomed to the neighbourhood by tennis player Serena Williams as well as NFL player Tom Brady, the husband of supermodel Gisele Bundchen, who said that David's team would be a 'great addition' to the MLS.
The announcement comes four years after Beckham originally exercised his option to own an expansion team.
There are nine bedrooms and ten bathrooms are spread across two floors in the remaining buildings and connecting corridors.
There is also a large window on the first floor overlooking the garden and a chandelier hanging at the top of the stairs.
Jay-Z, Will Smith and Jenifer Lopez were among the big names celebrating the inception of David Beckham's new MLS franchise in Miami. I was told I would never play for England because I was too small and too skinny.
"There have been many (hurdles)".
The Beckhams moved into their home with their four children in July 2016 after spending an estimated £5 million on renovations.
But the omissions did little to dampen the euphoria surrounding the announcement, which came after a tortuous near decade-long journey studded with false dawns and setbacks.
It also has a triple garage, two large courtyards with a water feature and the surrounding two acres contains an apple orchard. The Miami Fusion achieved success on the field, winning the Supporters' Shield and making the play-offs, yet it wasn't enough to stop the club from folding that very same year.
"This is something that has been a dream for many, many years", Beckham said. "So they have the opportunity to name their team to pick their colours and that's what's important to us and that's why we haven't announced everything today".
