Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the president of Paris Saint Germain, has told L’Equipe that he wants to extend David Beckham’s contract.
Beckham’s current contract is set to expire at the end of the season but he has convinced the leaders of the club that he still has plenty to offer the Parisian outfit.
The 38-year-old midfielder reportedly had eleven offers before deciding to join Paris Saint-Germain on a five-month loan deal but Al-Khelaifi now wants the former Manchester United star to remain at the club past his current contract.
"We will talk with him. Whatever his decision, we support David.
"He is very happy in Paris. Frankly, we want to keep him with us next season.
"Recruiting David was one of my best decisions.
"As a man, player, ambassador, he is exceptional. It creates something in this group. Everyone loves it."
Beckham has also stated his desire to remain in Paris beyond this season by telling Le Parisian: “Who wouldn’t want to stay at a place like this? It is always nice to be wanted.
“But I’m not getting any younger so we’ll see how I feel at the end of the season.”
Current manager Carlo Ancelotti is keen on extending the former England international’s contract with the club for another year telling reporters: “I am totally for David Beckham extending his contract.”
Beckham looks set to add to his impressive medals tally with PSG currently holding a seven-point lead in Ligue 1.
