After 4 years with L A Galaxy, David Beckham’s career in the MLS will be coming to an end at the end of this season that is assuming that the Los Angeles based outfit does not offer him a new contract.
Beckham is in his final year of his multi million dollar contract with Galaxy and this has led to a scramble for his signature among Europe’s elite clubs with the likes of PSG, Tottenham and Queen’s Park Rangers all in the race to sign him.
There is no doubt that Beckham took some of the shine with him to North America when he left Europe, in fact many people have confessed to not knowing the existence of LA Galaxy prior to him joining the club.
His contribution to the growth of the game in the region and the world stage has led many players in their golden years to consider the MLS as a destination to see out their career.
The MLS is now home to top class players like Thierry Henry, Robbie Keane and Rafael Marquez and it continue to draw interest amongst many other players with Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand being the latest player to express his desire to play in the league.
So with the way things look right now, Beckham is indeed set to exist the MLS. According to reports doing the rounds on the internet, PSG officials were set to meet with Beckham yesterday in order to discuss his future and possibly offer him a contract.
His current contract runs out in November and PSG who are owned by wealthy Qatari nationals are eager to lure Beckham to the French capital by offering him a 2 year contract.
Of course, as you would expect, the club is more than willing to make Beckham its top earner alongside new Argentine import Javier Pastore. This will see Beckham earn somewhere in the region of 4-5 million Euros per year.This is in addition to the $6.5 million he will get this year from Galaxy.
Beckham is set to make a decision on his future by October 15th, until then, what everyone can do is speculate on his final decision.
