Beckham set to join PSG

31 January 2013, 15:02

London - Former England captain David Beckham is set to join French club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on Thursday, both the BBC and Sky Sports News reported.

The 37-year-old midfielder has been without a club since ending a five-and-half-year spell in the United States last month after winning a second MLS Cup with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Beckham was reportedly in line to be unveiled by PSG later Thursday and the club announced a 18:00 SA time news conference at their Parc des Princes ground with their Qatari president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, and sports director Leonardo but no further details were given.

Former Brazil international Leonardo made no comment about the Beckham reports when contacted.

Beckham, who made 115 appearances for England - a national record for an outfield player - first came to prominence at Manchester United and helped the club win the Treble in 1999 when they took the English Premier League, FA Cup and European Champions League titles.

This time last year, in the corresponding January transfer window, he was also linked with a move to PSG.

But Beckham, who played for Spanish giants Real Madrid after leaving United and later had two loan spells at AC Milan, opted to remain in the United States.

Recently, Beckham - one of football's most high-profile players and married to the former pop star turned fashion designer Victoria Beckham - has been training with Arsenal.

But Arsene Wenger, the Premier League club's French manager, insisted he had no intention of signing Beckham in this transfer window, which closes later on Thursday.

Beckham previously trained with Arsenal in January 2010 during a break from the MLS season and two years ago had a similar training spell with the Gunners' north London rivals Tottenham.
