David Beckham joins Paris-Saint Germain, will donate salary to charity

David Beckham

Although Beckham's deal runs out in June, he intends to carry on playing, although whether or not that will still be with PSG remains to be decided. However, he is eager to have a long-term role at the club.

"We slightly brushed over it, a long-term partnership is what we have looked for,'' he said. "Short-term is playing but long-term is something we are very proud to be part of this organization that will grow and become one of the biggest in Europe.''

Immaculately dressed and groomed, Beckham was a model of elegance and calm as camera crews and photographers jostled for the best positions amid frenzied scenes in a tightly packed press room. He even joked that he feels much younger than his age.

"To be the elder statesman, I'm very proud of that,'' Beckham said. "No matter what my age is, I still feel 21 years old most days.''
