One-time Man Utd star joins Parisians until the summer.
Former England captain David Beckham has revealed that he will be playing for new club Paris Saint-Germain for free until the end of the season by donating his £150,000-per-week salary to a children’s charity in France.
“I’m very lucky. I’m 37 years old and I got offered a lot of offers, more now than I’ve had in my career at my age, so i’m honoured by that,” Beckham said in his introductory press conference.

“I chose PSG because I can see what the club are trying to do, I can see the players the club are bringing in. You know, it’s an exciting city, it always has been and always will be. But now there is a club that is going to have a lot of success over the next 10, 20, 30 years.”
“Throughout this time now I won’t receive any salary. We’ve decided my salary will go towards a children’s charity, a local charity in Paris, and that’s one of the things we’re very excited and proud to be able to do. It’s something exciting and something I don’t think has been done before.
“It’s something I’m very passionate about, children and the charity side of things, and so are the club so we came together and it’s something special.”
