Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo has revealed he would be interested in bringing former England captain David Beckham to the club.

Beckham has been linked with a move back to England, possibly with Tottenham or QPR, but Leonardo wants his next destination to be the French capital.

Leonardo said: 'I coached him at AC Milan [where Beckham, 36, was loaned from MLS side LA Galaxy] and we created a good relationship.

'He is more than a football player, but when you see him every day he trains and plays like a kid.

'He is someone that I really appreciate and admire so much - his values and everything he has done in football.'

When asked whether the club would consider signing the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star, Leonardo told the BBC: 'The door is open.

'He is more than a football player - he's a brand, a pop star. I would always consider him.

'He respects the rules, listens to you and wants the best for the team. That's why for me he is a big example. I worked with him and that's why I talk about his name.'

PSG are now backed by Qatar Sports Investments, and were Europe's biggest spenders in the summer.

The club splashed out ?75.6 million on new players, just ?3m less than Manchester City.
