Al-Khelaifi Gives David Beckham Glowing Appraisal

Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the president of Paris Saint-Germain, has more than talked up the possibility of luring David Beckham to the French capital.

Qatar Sports Investment (QSI), who are hoping to bankroll the venture, are eager to bring the English superstar to French shores when his contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy expires later this month.

Speaking to L’Equipe, Al-Khelaifi said:

“Beckham is extraordinary.” he enthused.

“Could he join PSG? Frankly I can’t tell you. PSG is attracted by any great players and Beckham is one of them. But it will be up to Leonardo and the coach to give their opinion.

“Did I meet him? No. David Beckham, he goes beyond sport. He is an ambassador, a trademark, he is an example for other people. But he is also remains a very good football player, and his age is no problem.

“Could he play very often in first-team? It will be up to Leonardo to determine if the conditions are gathered for him to come or not. But as long as we have no agreement with him, and it is not the case, we can’t say anything.

“We are currently satisfied with the players in our group, the team performances and atmosphere. I am not sure we will hire any additional players this winter.”

More on this saga is sure to develop in the next week or two.
