David Beckham has signed with a soccer team in France.
The former England captain and Los Angeles Galaxy star, 37, just signed with Paris Saint-Germain, a team that has been courting him for more than a year. Beckham signed with them after receiving some 12 offers from clubs around the world. The deal is for five-months and will expire on June 30.
A press conference was held at the club’s Parc des Princes stadium on the morning of Jan. 31. The soccer player said, “I consider myself to be part of this club in the future – in helping this club to grow… in helping the French league to grow and also helping this club to be one of the biggest powerhouses in football.”
His wife Victoria and four children will not be moving to France with him, as his sons are in school in London.
Although Beckham will be paid for his work, which is rumored to be at over a million dollars a month, he plans to donate all of it to local children’s charities in Paris.
