Former England international star David Beckham is foolishly considering signing a new deal with the Los Angeles Galaxy of the MLS over French Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain.

His current contract with the Galaxy expires at midnight of the new year, and though Beckham has been rumored to be considering a transfer to PSG, the Galaxy could remain with his current club according to the Daily Mail:

Sources close to the former Manchester United midfielder on Friday night said that, as it stands, the veteran is more inclined to stay in America.

Beckham, 36, will hold talks with his adviser, Simon Fuller, over the coming days before making his decision but is reluctant to uproot his wife Victoria and four children, who are settled in Los Angeles.

Beckham is not the superstar midfielder he once was for Manchester United, but he is still capable of being effective in the French league, and PSG are currently an exciting team with a bright future.

They just hired former AC Milan and Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti to be their new manager, and the club currently sit atop the Ligue 1 table with a three-point lead over Montpellier.

Beckham would be able to give the PSG midfield some creativity and playmaking, and he would also bring some valuable experience to a rather young midfield that includes talented star players such as Javier Pastore and Jeremy Menez.

The Galaxy are a fantastic club in the States, but Beckham can do better, even at age 36.

Many people think he is more of a marketing tool than someone who will help deliver results on the pitch, but he still has more to accomplish before his distinguished career is over.

A move to PSG would help Beckham prove he can be an important part of England's 2012 Olympic football team next summer, which will take part in London.

This might be David Beckham's last chance to play at the club level in Europe for the rest of his career, and it's an opportunity he must take.
