After leading the LA Galaxy to victory in the MLS Cup, former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder David Beckham could be starting the next face of his career in Paris if talks between city club PSG and La Galaxy are fruitful.
According to PSG sporting director Leonardo who also happened to coach Beckham during his short stint with Milan confirmed that talks between the two clubs were underway.
Speaking to English daily The Sun Leonardo however maintained that the finally decision was up to Beckham.
“Yes, we’ve spoken,” Leonardo said.
“These situations take time. We’ll see if something suits him and suits us.
“I know his history and he doesn’t need to tell me his past. He went to Milan and it was the same thing. There is a rapport with him.
“When you talk about Beckham, you’re talking about something big. Now his contract is finished, he will decide his future.”
Frankly, i think Beckham should just retire or take up a more advanced role in the sport. In fact, coming to think about it, Beckham would be the perfect replacement for Capello.
They might be big shoes to fill but i believe it will be a fitting end to his career. Whether the English public would welsome such a though is up for debate, however you and i both know that were he to move to PSG, the club would be getting far much more out of the deal than Beckham would.
Maybe, he would make a decent killing on salary wages and all, but at the end of the day, the club stands to benefit tremendously. Speaking out on the matter, Argentine international Javier Pastore has also spoken out on the matter saying that the club could use Beckham’s invaluable experience.
“Beckham could bring us his big experience, his experience of winning,” Pastore said.
“Talking with him would be rewarding. Beckham has a presence that is impressive. Here, at PSG, no one displays a record of achievements and a background of his calibre.”
For now it looks almost certain that Beckham will be leaving the Galaxy however, his ultimate destination still remains a mystery.
