Soccer Star Beckham to Donate Salary to Charity

Soccer star David Beckham says he plans to donate his salary from the Qatari-owned Paris Saint-Germain (P.S.G.) to a children's charity in the French capital.
He announced the news Thursday after signing a five-month deal with the Paris team.

Beckham did not elaborate on details of the donation which may be historically unprecedented in the league.

Last year, the team offered Beckham $1 million dollars per month to play in France, but the athlete turned the offer down.

The iconic British footballer and former England captain is a free agent after leaving Los Angeles Galaxy at the end of the Major League Soccer season in December.
