David Beckham's move to Paris Saint-Germain was the biggest story of January transfer deadline day.

The 37-year-old Beckham—a free agent after running down his contract at L.A. Galaxy—signed a five-month deal at the affluent French club, which will see him compete for the Ligue 1 title and Champions League.

Paris is the latest, and surely last, stop on a glittering career that began at Manchester United before taking in spells at Real Madrid, Galaxy and Milan.

In this clip, B/R lead writer Will Tidey breaks down the reasons behind Beckham choosing Paris.
