Big Money offer draws Beckham away from Spurs

International football superstar David Beckham is set to sign a £12million deal to join French giants Paris St Germain, according to the Daily Mail.


The former England captain’s contract with MLS side LA Galaxy is set to expire in the coming month, and he is free to sign for a new club.


Beckham’s destination had been in the balance earlier in the week, with PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi admitting it was ‘between Tottenham and PSG’.


Al-Khelaifi heads the Qatari-based company that owns the Ligue 1 side, and this is the latest step in their plan to make PSG a global football superpower.

The contract is reported to be for only 18 months and worth an astonishing £11.6million, effectively pricing Spurs out of any deal.


Negotiations with the former Manchester United, Real Madrid and AC Milan midfielder have been ongoing for some time, but PSG owners are believed to be confident of finalising the deal soon.


The PSG president is also the general manager of the sport arm of TV station Al Jazeera, who recently purchased one of the broadcast rights packages for the league from 2012.


The Qatari owners of the side from the French capital are keen to raise their global profile and see signing Beckham as the perfect way in which to do this.


PSG have already smashed the French transfer record to sign Argentine Javier Pastore, as well as signing a number of Ligue 1’s rising stars.


The owners want Beckham to head the club’s profile in a Champions League campaign next year – they are on course to do this, currently joint top of Ligue 1.
