British soccer superstar, model and father David Beckham has completed a move to French football. He will play with Paris Saint Germain. Although Beckham is already 37 years old, he will be competing at the top level of competition in France. His presence at Paris St.-Germain will signify more public relations for the team.
The next stop on David Beckham's glamorous and jet-setting soccer career seems like a logical one: Paris.
On Thursday, hours after his private plane landed in the French capital, Beckham announced at a news conference that he would join Paris St.-Germain for the rest of the Ligue 1 season. He said he would donate his salary for the five-month deal to a local children's charity.
For Paris St.-Germain, a club whose ambitions have swelled over the past year under the control of a new Qatari ownership group, the signing represents a major public relations coup, if not an actual boost for the team on the field.
Beckham, 37, one of the world's most famous athletes, an Englishman who became a household name for his devastating right foot but also because of his good looks, was chased by several teams around the world.
