Paris: Paris St Germain sporting director Leonardo has confirmed that the club has held preliminary talks with Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder David Beckham to sign him when the transfer window opens in January 2012.
“Yes, we’ve spoken. These situations take time. We’ll see if something suits him and suits us. I know his history and he doesn’t need to tell me his past. He went to Milan and it was the same thing. There is a rapport with him,” the Sun quoted Leonardo, as saying.
“When you talk about Beckham, you’re talking about something big. Now his contract is finished, he will decide his future. If Beckham thinks about coming, that’s something we should be happy about,” he added.
Leonardo further insists that the club would not be able to find a better professional than Beckham.
“I think he can still bring something on the pitch with the person he is and the experience he has. If a player like him is thinking about Paris Saint-Germain that’s good, and we’ve opened the door for discussions,” he added.
Beckham has been offered the chance to stay in Los Angeles, but so far has not agreed any new deal.
