The British power couple were nearly packing their bags for France as soccer star David Beckham was said to be closing in on a new deal with French club Paris Saint-Germain. But the French soccer club president debunked those rumors in the first few days of 2012. Beckham helped boost domestic and international interest in Major League Soccer and helped the L.A. Galaxy win the MLS cup since his arrival in 2007 with wife Victoria Beckham. Perhaps the former Spice Girl and her well-heeled brood will stay in L.A. to support her hubby's next headline-making endeavor now that David is reportedly working on renewing his contract with the Galaxy.
