GALAXY: Beckham a no-show at PSG

December, 18, 2011
Those hoping David Beckham would be introduced Sunday as Paris Saint-Germain's newest superstar left the Parc des Princes disappointed.

The Galaxy midfielder wasn't seen at PSG's 0-0 draw against Lille, the British media widely reported, despite reports Saturday by France Football magazine that Beckham and his family were in Paris, ostensibly to sign with the Qatari-owned French giant.

The magazine, one of the sport's most prestigious, reported that Beckham might be introduced before the game as the club's latest and greatest conquest, and the stadium was filled and buzzing with expectation.

Beckham's five-year contract with the Galaxy expires Dec. 31, and he is considering returning to the MLS Cup champions, signing an 18-month deal reportedly worth $18.7 million with PSG, returning home to England (where several clubs are interested, with Tottenham the likeliest destination) or signing elsewhere.

It is assumed he is weighing the offers from PSG and the Galaxy.
