Beckham to Sign Deal with PSG: Soccer Talk at YouWager

YouWager experts have learned that soccer star player David Beckham is set to join Paris St. Germain and is currently on his way to the French capital for a medical.

Beckham had been thinking about offers from clubs around the world after leaving the Los Angeles Galaxy in December to end a six-year stint in Major League Soccer.

As of right now the PSG is in the Champions League knockout stage, which gives the 37 year-old player the prospect of winning a league title in a fourth country. PSG will square off against Valencia on Feb. 12 and March 6.

In 2012 the Qatari-owned Ligue 1 club has been the highest-spending club in Europe.

The former Manchester United star joins a roster of international stars accumulated by PSG over the past two years, since the Qatari investment company bought a majority share in the club in May 2011.

The Paris St. Germain team includes Swedish forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic (who leads Ligue 1 with 19 goals), Brazil’s Thiago Silva and Lucas, and Argentina’s Ezequiel Lavezzi. Those four players were acquired last summer for a total of $140 million.

According to Forbes magazine Beckham earned $46 million from salary ($4 million with the LA Galaxy) and endorsements in 2012, ranking the London native 35th on the Forbes Celebrity 100 List as the world’s highest-earning soccer player.
