PARIS (AP) — Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo says he's "not sure" whether the French club will sign David Beckham from the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Leonardo has made no secret of his admiration for the 36-year-old former England captain. He said at a news conference Friday that there are other factors that may influence whether Beckham joins when the transfer window opens next week.

Leonardo says "it's always been a question of personal matters" for Beckham, rather than contract issues. He also noted that Beckham has his family in California.

Beckham's five-year contract with the Galaxy ended after winning his first MLS Cup last month. He could accept an offer to stay with the Galaxy, and several English clubs have expressed interest in signing him.
