David Beckham Doesn't Want To Uproot His Family To France

Au Revoir Paris!

It looks like the Beckhams are staying in America!

It’s going to be a good New Year, people.

England’s finest export, David Beckham has decided to not take up the offer to move to Paris and join the Paris Saint Germain soccer team. Instead, he will be staying in California and will continue to play for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The father-of-four cited “family reasons” as for his refusal to move.

Even though wife Victoria Beckham would have fit right in with the Paris fashion scene, the couple decided that the move would disturb their kids’ lives in California. Basically, they didn’t want to take their kids out of their schools and have them start all over again in France.

PSG’s club director told French mag L’Equipe, “It’s a shame. But the welfare of his family in Los Angeles, the wish not to change everything in his life, weighed heavily.”

We on the other hand are happy. We’d so prefer to see little Harper Beckham grow up as a California girl rather than a snobby Parisian princess. Plus, could you imagine David speaking French? It would be like hearing Mickey Mouse doing a bad impression of Pepe Le Pew.

And plus, we wouldn’t have the opportunity to see shirtless David Beckham surfing pics in Paris. Let’s reminisce here together with our photo gallery.
