PSG close to Beckham deal - report
Big-spending Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain are ready to offer LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham a lucrative contract, according to reports in France.
French newspaper Le Parisien claims that PSG officials will meet with Beckham, 36, on Wednesday in order to offer the global football icon a tempting deal.
Sporting director Leonardo revealed last month that PSG were considering a move for the former England captain and it appears the Qatari-owned club intend to snap him up the LA star when his MLS contract expires in November.
PSG will reportedly offer Beckham a two-year contract that will make him the club's top earner alongside Argentina international Javier Pastore, who signed from Palermo in a €39 million deal in July.
When asked last month if PSG would sign former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder Beckham, Leonardo said: "The door is open. He is more than a football player - he's a brand, a pop star. I would always consider him. He respects the rules, listens to you and wants the best for the team. That's why for me he is a big example. I worked with him and that's why I talk about his name."
"I coached him at AC Milan and we created a good relationship," Leonardo told BBC Sport. "He is more than a football player, but when you see him every day he trains and plays like a kid. He is someone that I really appreciate and admire so much - his values and everything he has done in football."
A number of Premier League clubs, including Tottenham and QPR, have also been linked with a move for Beckham.
