The former England captain is expected to be unveiled at a news conference this afternoon.

Sources close to the player say Beckham has made the decision to go to PSG after considering lucrative offers from around the world.

Beckham made his choice mainly for football reasons – the fact PSG are in the Champions League knockout stage and the prospect of winning a league title in a fourth country proved attractive.

The clincher was the presence of coach Carlo Ancelotti and director Leonardo at the club –Beckham knows both men from their time at AC Milan where he spent time on loan from Los Angeles Galaxy.

PSG have the financial clout too – they are Qatari-owned and have been the highest-spending club in Europe in the past year.

Beckham played five games for Preston during a loan spell from Manchester United in 1995.
