09:24 AM ET 12.31 | Paris Saint-Germain's bid to sign David Beckham from the Galaxy could be thwarted by family matters, the French club's sporting director Leonardo said Friday. Leonardo has made no secret of his admiration for the 36-year-old former England captain. He said at a news conference there are other factors that may influence whether Beckham joins when the transfer window opens next week. "He is in L.A., he has his family over there. We have talked a lot and we are still talking, but I'm not sure it will be done," Leonardo said while Saint-Germain introduced Carlo Ancelotti as its new coach.

We can't let a Beckham story go by without comments. He's got a reputation to uphold on here.

And who would be surprised? He has 4 little children to care about. They want them schooled in LA. Why wouldn't a resign with LA and a 6 month loan not accomplish the same dream of captaining Team Great Britain?
