Since the early part of this soccer week will be all about Barcelona and Paris Saint Germain and the very highest profile of Champions League clashes, let’s just start with the huggy fest currently going on between PSG and David Beckham.
Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi loves Beckham, and wants the man to stay around his well-heeled club for another season.
PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti says he wants another spin on the David Beckham wheel. “I’m totally for David Beckham extending his contract,” the manager said late last week.
Beckham is all about the club! He loves PSG! Who wouldn’t love it, which is more or less what he told Le Parisien about the club and the city of lights and café culture and all that fancy jazz?
Of course, Beckham also says “We’ll see.” Apparently he wants to date around a little before committing.
Barcelona travels north to meet PSG at Parc des Princes in gritty Southwest Paris. The match begins at 3:45 p.m. ET on Fox Soccer Channel.
