Uefa president Michel Platini has stated that former England international David Beckham is no longer the player he once was and added that Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing the midfielder for commercial reasons.
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.
