David Beckham, the 37 year-old ex-England midfielder has signed a 5 month contract to play for Paris St-Germain. Beckham’s salary of at least £1m will be going to a local children’s charity and he will not be receiving anything for himself.
“I won’t receive any salary. My salary will go to a local children’s charity. That’s one of the things we are excited and proud to do,” he said.
“I’m excited, it’s something we’ve been working on and talking about for quite a while,” he continued.
Paris St-Germain is the first club David Beckham is signing with after spending sometime in the US playing for LA Galaxy. His contract with LA Galaxy ended in December 2012 and he has been training with Arsenal since his return to England.
