(Lot of news snippets today).
Reports out of Paris today–that’s Le Parisien’s (a Paris daily) on the left–that David Beckham will–at long last–make his way to Paris Saint-Germain for the tidy fee of $18.7M over 18-months.
Ligue1 will represent the fourth league that Beckham will attempt to win a championship in (The Premiership, La Liga, MLS); his legacy of a nomadic footballer championship-seeking footballer will be cemented with a win in Paris.
Beckham’s departure was all but a foregone conclusion after he led the Galaxy to the MLS Cup this year.
With little left to prove in MLS, the Beckham brand–one that is very careful about it’s placement–stood to only lose value in the States after the triumph. For Galaxy fans, the news comes on the heals of Juninho heading south back to San Paulo. Beckham’s move, if true, would leave the Galaxy with a gaping hole in linking midfielders and there next move will certainly look to shore that position up.
