PARIS • Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi wants veteran midfielder David Beckham to stay next season, describing him as "fantastic on and off the pitch."
The 37-year-old former England captain has made a positive start since joining PSG in January, even though most of his appearances have been as a substitute. His current contract lasts until the end of the season.
In an interview with sports daily L'Equipe on Monday, Al-Khelaifi says "he's happy in Paris. Honestly, we want to keep him for next season," adding that discussions should hopefully begin soon.
