First Monaco, now PSG! Beckham left in limbo as Ligue 1 leaders join list of clubs to rule out move


Carlo Ancelotti has ruled out a January move for David Beckham.
The Paris St Germain coach worked with the former England captain at AC Milan in 2009, and also tried to tempt the midfielder to the French capital last year.
Beckham is on the lookout for one last hurrah having turned his back on LA Galaxy after five ultimately suyccessful years in the USA.

French rivals Monaco were the first to show their hand in pursuit of the 37-year-old, while further afield clubs in Australia also showed an interest.
However in both cases Beckham's wage demands appear to have scuppered any move, and now PSG have ruled themselves out, too.
Boss Ancelotti, said: 'I know that he's leaving the Los Angeles Galaxy, but we are not interested.'
Ligue 1 leaders PSG have already signed one player, Brazilian Lucas Moura, to whom they beat Manchester United in the summer, though he stayed with Sao Paulo until their season had finished.
And speaking of his new recruit, Ancelotti has hailed the 20-year-old as a future star.

The Italian added: 'He is the only player to arrive during the transfer window. This is a great player, he is young, he will be the future of the club.
'He has many qualities and it will be no problem to have a good relationship with the other players.
'We are happy because it was not easy to recruit a player as important as him, and he will help the team do better.'
