According to French daily L'Equipe, Beckham will sign his contact with PSG at the beginning of January, with Paris daily Le Parisien reporting the 36-year-old midfielder set to earn €800,000 ($1.05 million) per month.

However, a spokesperson for Beckham - whose main aim next year is to play for the Great Britain team at the London Olympics - categorically denied a deal had been done.

"No agreement with any football club has been reached. Any talk of a deal is premature. David is presently considering his options," said the spokesperson.

Another source close to Beckham said it was by no means certain he would opt for PSG as he could remain with LA Galaxy with whom he won the Major League Soccer crown last season.

The Beckham camp had to deny similar claims Saturday when it had been reported he was in Paris and that his former pop star wife Victoria had been looking for a suitable house for them and their four children.

If agreed, Beckham's deal with PSG would end the star's time in Major League Soccer, having helped Los Angeles Galaxy to the league title in November.

Backed by wealthy Qatari investors, PSG has spent more than €85 million ($111 million) this summer to sign nine players. The club currently sits second in France's top division.
