Paris Saint-Germain are on the verge of signing former England captain David Beckham on a free transfer.
The experienced midfielder landed in the French capital on Thursday to complete his move to the Ligue 1 giants.
The 37-year-old has been without a club ever since leaving LA Galaxy in December 2012, and had been training with Arsenal in recent weeks in order to stay fit.
Beckham had also been linked with clubs such as AC Milan and Monaco, but now seems destined to continue his career at PSG.
The midfielder was already believed to be close to joining the Parisiens a year ago, but the move failed to materialise.
The Ligue 1 leaders have scheduled a press conference for 5pm local time, where they are expected to announce the capture of Beckham.
Meanwhile, former Manchester United team-mate Gary Neville is confident that his former team-mate will succeed at in France.
“He’s still incredibly fit, I don’t think there will be a problem with his medical and he’s always been an incredibly fit player and someone who has got incredible stamina,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“It’s another chance for him to continue to play at a really good level of football. Paris Saint-Germain have got a good team with plenty of exceptional players. He knows the manager there so that would be a positive move for him.”
