Paris, Jan 31 (EFE).- English midfielder David Beckham signed a contract here Thursday to play the next five months with top French club Paris Saint-Germain for an undisclosed sum that he will donate to charity.

Three months after leaving Major League Soccer's LA Galaxy, the 37-year-old former England captain begins a new adventure with PSG, whose free-spending Qatari owners are determined to make one of Europe's best clubs.

Beckham, who becomes the oldest player in Ligue 1, told a press conference in Paris that while he doesn't expect to immediately join manager Carlo Ancelotti's starting lineup, he can still offer his teammates the benefit of his experience.

The charismatic, media-savvy star made 115 appearances with the English national squad and won six Premier League titles and one Champions League crown while playing for Manchester United.

He was also part of championship squads at Real Madrid and the Galaxy.

Besides leading Ligue 1, PSG has qualified for the knockout stage of the Champions League.

PSG's owners have spent more than 100 million euros ($135.8 million) to acquire top-flight players such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva, Lucas Moura and Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Though his on-field brilliance has waned, Beckham remains enormously popular around the world and is one of the foremost brands in professional sport.
