David Beckham To Give Wages To Charity

Find out what the footballing legend plans to do with the salary from his five-month contract…

He may have just signed a lucrative five month contract with the French football team Paris St-Germain, but the the ex-England player will not be pocketing any of the money himself.

The thirty-seven year old dad of four yesterday announced that he will be joining Quatari-backed French club in the French capital of Paris. 

However, the soccer star has decided to give all the money he earns during his five-month contract to a French children's charity. 

The offer is incredibly generous and is rumoured to be in the region of one-million.

'It's something exciting and something that I'm not sure has been done before,' Beckham said at a press conference in Paris.

'I'm very passionate about children and the charity side of things and so are the club. So we came together and it's something special.'

David and wife Victoria recently moved back to the England and enrolled their boys at independent London day schools.

The singer-tuned fashion designer will remain in the UK with the couple's children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper.
