Beckham set to snub Paris move in favour of signing new LA Galaxy deal
U-turn: Beckham doesn”t want to uproot his family
David Beckham is set to make a dramatic U-turn on his proposed move to Paris Saint-Germain and stay with LA Galaxy.
The former England captain has been heavily linked with a move to France since the MLS season ended in November and was expected to become one of new PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti’s first recruits.
Beckham was in the French capital last week, fuelling speculation that he was on the verge of a lucrative move to PSG. But Sportsmail understands Beckham is now giving serious consideration to signing a new contract with the Galaxy.
Sources close to the former Manchester United midfielder on Friday night said that, as it stands, the veteran is more inclined to stay in America.
Beckham, 36, will hold talks with his adviser, Simon Fuller, over the coming days before making his decision but is reluctant to uproot his wife Victoria and four children, who are settled in Los Angeles.

The player’s Galaxy deal expires at midnight on New Year”s Eve, but a one-year, rolling contract is on the table. The LA deal would give Beckham dispensation to play for Team GB in the London Olympics, which fall in the middle of the MLS season.
