Beckham to steal the spotlight in France

Whether he plays or not, David Beckham alone will generate more headlines than the clash against Olympique Marseille as the former England captain makes his first appearance at the Parc des Princes on Sunday.

The 37-year-old midfielder, past his prime, will be presented as a Paris St. Germain player to the crowd before the leaders take on third-placed OM, who trail by five points.

His celebrity lifestyle epitomizes PSG’s lavish spending policy as the Qatar-backed club have poured over 200 million euros ($267.40 million) into transfers in the last two years, in sharp contrast with Marseille’s frugal philosophy. Reuters
