David Beckham signs to French football team, announces he will be donating ALL of his fee to charity

Just when we thought we had the Beckham family back for good in the UK, David Beckham has announced that he has signed a contract with French team Paris St Germain.

The 37-year-old footballer announced that he had signed to the Ligue 1 team for a five month term.

He said: "I'm excited, it's something we've been working on and talking about for quite a while.”

However, rather than pocket the earnings from the deal for himself, the philanthropic footballer revealed that he will be donating his entire pay packet to charity.

Now that’s what you call generous.

He continued: "I won't receive any salary. My salary will go to a local children's charity. That's one of the things we are excited and proud to do."

He added: "It's something the guys do [PSG management], but obviously it's a very good figure. That's one thing were very excited about. To be able to give a huge sum to a children's charity in Paris is very special."

What this new deal means for David’s family however is another matter.

The footballer recently relocated back to the UK with his wife Victoria Beckham and their family after living in LA for six years.

The family reportedly decided to make the move for Victoria, whose fashion label is based in London.

Still, commuting to France isn’t anywhere near as bad as LA.
