PSG planning ‘rockstar’ presentation for David Beckham unveiling

According to L'Equipe's Wednesday edition, David Beckham (not pictured above in fake Beckham nativity scene featuring terrible impersonators) is likely to sign an 18-month contract with PSG in early January and join his new teammates for training in Qatar. The French sport paper also says that PSG officials spent Tuesday planning a lavish unveiling ceremony "worthy of a true rockstar" that would see Beckham start at Paris' city hall before traveling down the Champs-Elysées.

After that -- and I'm just guessing here -- they will then blow up the Eiffel Tower and replace it with a statue of Beckham twice as tall. It will also have customizable 5 o'clock shadow.

Meanwhile, David's handlers have been quick to emphasize that nothing is done yet. From the AP:

"No agreement has been reached with any club yet—talks of a deal are premature," Beckham's management company, XIX Entertainment, said in a statement to The Associated Press. "David has yet to make a final decision on his future."

In other words, it's basically done, but nothing has been signed and they want to announce it first. To be honest, it doesn't matter whether he signs with PSG or not. This post was just an excuse to use that nativity scene picture.
