The Beckhams are not moving to France just yet. David
Beckham will be staying in Los Angeles, having turned down a deal to end his
career in France.

The 36-year-old soccer star is staying with the LA Galaxy
team for at least one more year after talks between him and Paris Saint-Germain
bosses fell through.

The news comes almost two months after Beckham led the LA
Galaxy to victory over the Houston Dynamo in America's MLS Cup.

Insiders report that Beckham felt his wife Victoria,
their three sons and baby daughter Harper, who was born in LA in the summer of
2011, were settled in the city and he didn't want to uproot them.

Victoria, a former Spice Girl turned top fashion designer, has several close friends - including Eva Longoria and Kate Beckinsale - in LA, and was believed to be quite comfortable staying there.  

According to ESPN, Beckham's new deal is worth a whopping
$6.5 million
