Former England captain David Beckham's career takes a surprise twist as he joins the French football club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

The 37-year-old ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder signed a 5-month contract with PSG.

The Englishman said he would not receive any salary from the team with the money being paid to a Paris children's home instead.

Beckham, who won six premier league titles and the 1999 Champions League with United, also bagged league titles in his final season with all three clubs he has played for on a permanent basis, Manchester United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy. -- ANC Dateline Philippines, Feb. 1, 2013
