Most reports have been making David Beckham's signing with Paris-St. Germain a matter of "when" and not "if," but PSG sporting director Leonardo offered a far less convincing take on the potential signing on Friday.

At a press conference where Carlo Ancelotti was introduced as the club's new coach, Leonardo told reporters that Beckham's move to Paris was "not done yet, and it might not happen."

"We never said it was done," Leonardo added. "We have a good relationship, but I don't know what he is going to do. There is always the question of his personal life. He is in Los Angeles. Nothing is signed."

Beckham played on loan at AC Milan under both Leonardo and Ancelotti, and his past relationship with both parties was expected to be a major factor in his prospective move to Ligue 1 following the expiration of his five-year MLS contract.
