Local newspapers in France are declaring victory in the David Beckham sweepstakes, but sources close to Becks say otherwise.

The Los Angeles Galaxy's David Beckham has a huge decision to make: go to Paris Saint-Germain and help them win a Ligue 1 title or finish his career as a member of the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The local newspapers in France have declared victory, but agents close to Beckham suggest otherwise.

"All we can do is reaffirm that no decision has been taken as yet. It might not be long before a decision is reached, but that decision is purely down to David. The fact is that he has yet to decide," a spokesperson said otherwise, according to ESPN Football Correspondent Harry Harris.

"David knows [PSG director of football] Leonardo having worked with him at Milan, but he's just had a great season at LA, and with Robbie and Landon there the quality has improved," a source told ESPNsoccernet. "The new [MLS] season starts in March with plenty of time to be in top shape for the Olympics, so it's a big decision, but one that has yet to be taken."

Managers in Ligue 1 are aware of Beckham's star power, now that he has won league titles in three different countries.

“It’s not surprising,” Marseille manager Didier Deschamps told Jerome Pugmire of the Associated Press. “He’s still a great professional, even though he’s not so young anymore.”

PSG defeated Saint-Etienne 1-0 earlier today to move to the top spot in Ligue 1 over Montpelier.
