The French football club Paris Saint-Germain are among a host of leading clubs ready to offer David Beckham the final challenge of his illustrious career.
The 37-year-old, who has announced he is to leave the Los Angeles Galaxy, intends to make a decision on his future by mid-December.
He has received offers from Russia, China, Australia and Brazil.
But it is understood Beckham will only accept an offer which would result in him playing regular first-team football.
The former England captain intends to use the time between now and the end of his contract with Galaxy to weigh up his many options.
PSG offered Beckham a multi-million pound contract to move to Paris last November but he opted not to accept the offer because of family reasons.
There are five Australian A-League football teams interested in Beckham, but not the Phoenix.
