Beckham not yet a PSG player

LONDON (AP) — David Beckham is not yet a Paris Saint-Germain player, with French reports that a deal has been completed being described as “premature” by his management company.

The 36-year-old former England captain has been in talks with the French capital club, but could still accept an offer to stay at the Los Angeles Galaxy where his five-year deal ended after winning his first MLS Cup last month

“No agreement has been reached with any club yet — talks of a deal are premature,” Beckham’s management company, XIX Entertainment, said in a statement to The Associated Press. “David has yet to make a final decision on his future.”

The French media, though, seemed confident that Beckham will join big-spending PSG, with dailies L’Equipe and Le Parisien reporting in their Wednesday editions that Beckham has agreed a deal to join the club next month.

Le Parisien claimed that Beckham would earn 800,000 euros ($1.05 million) per month at PSG, whose wealthy Qatari owners have spent more than 85 million euros ($111 million) on players since buying the club in May.

While Beckham’s England career is effectively over, he is eager to remain playing for a top side so he is considered for a spot in Britain’s squad for the 2012 London Olympics.
