The next stop in the magnificent career of David Beckham touches down in Paris. In a news conference Thursday afternoon, Beckham announced to the world he signed a five-month contract with Paris Saint-Germain that would finish out the Ligue 1 season. Beckham also announced his five-month salary would be donated to a local children’s charity. “It’s one of the things we talked about from the start, but this all happened so quick,” said Beckham, who did not disclose how much he will be paid or which group will get the money. “I thought what a great idea it would be that the salary would go to a children’s charity in Paris.” This is the most recent move of Beckham’s career. The former captain of England has become one of the world’s most famous athletes after winning titles with Manchester United, Real Madrid and the Los Angeles Galaxy. “Every club I have played for throughout the world, I have been successful with. I have been successful with Manchester United, and I have always said that I would never want to play for another English club,” Beckham said. “It’s the team that I support, that I always dreamt of playing for.” Beckham is on the brink of becoming the oldest outfield player registered to any French club. His contract with PSG runs out in June, but the 37-year-old doesn’t plan to stop being involved. “We slightly brushed over it, a long-term partnership is what we have looked for,” he said. “Short term is playing, but long term is something we are very proud to be part of this organization that will grow and become one of the biggest in Europe.” As for on-field arguments, some challenges await Beckham. One being Beckham’s specialty, free kicks. He will look to challenge PSG’s ‘main man’ Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and he’s not backing down by any means. “If I get the chance, then I’m sure we will share that thing. Whoever fancies it,” Beckham said. “I’ve done it in the past. I’ve been in teams with Roberto Carlos and Ronaldo and [Zinedine] Zidane — trying to take a free kick off Roberto Carlos is pretty difficult. I expect with Ibra, it will be exactly the same.”
