Reports: Beckham staying in LA

After months of speculation, questions and premature reports, it appears that the final twist in the David Beckham offseason saga has the player staying right where he is.

According to multiple reports from France and England, Beckham is not going to be signing with Paris-St. Germain after all, and a return to the Los Angeles Galaxy seems imminent.

PSG sporting director Leonardo reportedly told French outlet L'Equipe that, "It's over. It's a shame. But the welfare of his family in L.A., the wish not not to change everything in his life, weighed heavily."

Meanwhile, PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi reportedly said on French radio that,"David Beckham is in Los Angeles, and he's going to stay there. He will not come, that is clear."

It is important to note that no new deal with the Galaxy has been announced or signed just yet. The BBC is reporting that MLS has offered Beckham a "one-year rolling deal" that would have the original Designated Player back for a sixth MLS season.

What do you think of this development? Did you think Beckham would return to MLS all along? Shocked that it appears he won't be ending up at PSG or anywhere else?
