The Uefa supremo has voiced his opinion that the former Manchester United ace is no longer a top player, but will still sell plenty of shirts for whoever he signs for
PSG's sporting director, Leonardo, recently stated that the Ligue 1 giants are keen to lure the former Manchester United star to Paris, but Platini feels their interest has little to do with Beckham's qualities as a footballer.
"Beckham to Paris, that will be quite a boost for the shops in Paris," Platini said to RTL when asked about the potential transfer.
"I really like him as a player, but he's no longer the midfielder that he once was.
"If he's coming to Paris Saint-Germain, it will be for other reasons than just to play football."
The 36-year-old's contract with LA Galaxy is set to expire next month. He has also been linked with Premier League sides QPR and Tottenham Hotspur.
