Charting David Beckham’s course, Day 2; scratch Paris Saint-Germain from the list

If we use process of elimination to help determine David Beckham’s next playing address, this thing is going to drag on until young Brooklyn Beckham will be signs his first pro contract.

But, it’s all we got. So …

Scratch Paris Saint-Germain, apparently.

PSG manager Carlo Ancelotti quickly pooh-poohed any guesswork that soccer’s most iconic figure will be landing at Parc Des Prince.

“We did not offer, good luck to him,” the former AC Milan and Chelsea manager said.

In most minds, PSG was in play here because the once-famous club, recently financially reinforced, had offered Beckham a fat contract one year ago, one the Galaxy man seemed to mull seriously.

Beckham announced late last year his decision to remain in Los Angeles, mostly for family reasons.

    Why wouldn’t he just get involved in ownership of the Galaxy? The Galaxy won’t still be for sale by the end of next year, so he needs to opt out of his contact now. Why uproot his family? Why have to buy into an expansion team in some other market? I’d love to see him maintain his association with the Galaxy.

    LAG might be his MLS football-play “family”, but as in any dysfunctional family, it’s best to keep family outside the business family. I see Beckham eventually buying into a MLS Miami franchise in the future.
